Adhesives and Adhesion

  • O. V. Roussak
  • H. D. Gesser


Adhesives play an important part in modern technology. They are usually defined as any substance which holds two solids together—by forming bonds between the solids as distinct from bolting, riveting, or even brazing, welding, or soldering. One of the most common examples of adhesion and one not yet understood completely is the barnacles which strongly adhere to ships’ hulls and which are supposed to have influenced the battle of Salamis in 480 B.C.
