Adhesives & Sealants
Production adhesives offer many advantages over binding techniques. Ie. Sewing, Mechanical Fastening and Thermal Bonding. Advantages include: the ability to bind different materials together,
to ability to 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 creativity process. Adhesives 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.
