Industrial adhesives serve the purpose of bonding various substrates through both adhesion, which involves surface bonding, and cohesion, which relates to internal strength.
These adhesives encompass a range of organic and inorganic chemical compounds, including acrylic, epoxy, hot melt, polyurethane, silicone, thermoset, and UV curing adhesives, along with industrial sealants. Their primary application lies in fastening various components.
Adhesives and sealants find extensive use across diverse industries such as automotive, construction, electronics, packaging, graphic arts, and medicine. The aerospace sector has particularly embraced adhesive technology, recognizing its advantages over traditional methods like welding and bolting.
