Fundamentals of Structural Adhesive Bonding

  • Alphonsus V. Pocius
Part of the Topics in Applied Chemistry book series (TAPP)

Abstract

An understanding of the technology of structural adhesive bonding involves an understanding of several disciplines. Thus, to appreciate how structural adhesives “stick,” a knowledge of surface chemistry and wetting is necessary. To understand wetting and also some of the physical properties of adhesive bonds, it is necessary to draw on some aspects of the rheology of polymers. The development of an understanding of the mechanical properties and strength of adhesive bonds requires an awareness of the mechanical properties of polymers, fracture mechanics, and, in addition, the mechanical engineering of structures. Finally, there is a need to develop an appreciation for chemical structure-physical property relationships of polymers in order to understand how the chemistries of structural adhesives allow the development of adhesion and physical strength. Other chapters in this book will cover the chemistry and engineering aspects of structural adhesives. This chapter will discuss basic physical properties of materials, especially polymers, and will also include a treatment of basic fracture mechanics. In addition, some aspects of the science of adhesion and wetting and how these relate to the strength of adhesive bonds will be covered. The pertinent literature on the basic aspects of polymer physical properties and surface chemistry will be reviewed.
