The Basics For A Successful Bond

We work closely with our customers to ensure they have the correct joint design and choice of adhesive. This enables us to ensure a strong, durable bond even in the most demanding of climates.

In this blog we have briefly summarized the basic requirements for a successful bond.

  • The Correct Choice

Which adhesive to select depends on the nature of the substrates, the performance requirements of the application and the most suitable bonding process.

  • Good Joint Design

A carefully designed joint will give a stronger bond as maximum performance of the adhesive is allowed for.

  • Surface Cleanliness

To obtain a good adhesive bond, surface contamination (dust, oil, grease, etc) must be removed.

  • Wetting of Surfaces

The displacement of air or other gases results in greater contact area

  • Bonding Process

The bond should be subjected to the correct pressure, temperature, and clamp time. The cure process will happen because of either chemical reaction, cooling or drying.

  • Testing

Due to the huge variation of substrates, materials and environments, pre-manufacturing trials should be completed including cataplasmic testing.
