Production adhesives offer many advantages over binding techniques. Ie. Sewing, Mechanical Fastening and Thermal Bonding. Benefits include: the ability to bind different materials together, distribute stress across a joint, the cost-effectiveness of a mechanized process, an improvement in aesthetic design, and increased design flexibility thus removing known limitations from the creative process. Adhesives are referred to by the method of adhesion. Reactive and non-reactive adhesives - which refers to whether the adhesive has to chemically react in order to harden. Industrial sealants seal surfaces to prevent passage of a liquid or gas. In production applications, the need to seal and prevent leaks increases productivity and saves money. Industrial sealants are best suited for the following industries: automotive, electronics, aerospace, metal, durable goods, consumer goods, M&R, and packaging industries.
