OVERVIEW OF THE BENEFITS OF ADHESIVES & SEALANTS:

New manufacturing components have challenged the role & application of adhesives & sealants.

Think about joining different new materials to construct a new or improved component.

Which joining technique will be best?

Can new joining techniques solve well-known joining problems such as:

Welding can alter the properties of the material within the hat affected area.
Riveting can allow force transfer points.
Drilling holes can damage & weaken the material.

The answer is YES, in most cases!

Bonding technology currently plays a critical role in the manufacturing sector efficiencies & growth.

The Top Four Reasons to consider updating your bonding process: 

Material - Bonding technology can bond any desired com­bination of materials with each other to create long lasting bonds.

Processing - Bonding technology in production processes allows the material prop­erties of the substrates to remain intact.

Joining - New construction methods can be explored as the long lasting bonds & stable strength of the substrates can handle more stress.

Design - Bonding technology can introduce customized enhancements to the component during the actual joining process.

Times Savings = Cost Savings!
