October Question Of The Month


Which adhesive product should I use for my application?

The term adhesion refers to a thin layer (the boundary layer) between the substrate and the adhesive itself - it applies to all forces or mechanisms which hold the adhesive with each substrate.
Forces and mechanisms related to the forces created by intermolecular interactions, chemical bonds anchoring mechanisms by roughness, adsorption and diffusion.

The adsorption phenomena occurs when part of the adhesive polymers enter in contact with the substrate but not cross it, bonding to it via the action of intermolecular interactions and / or chemical bonds that develop in the area known as boundary layer or interface. We can define the adsorption as the adhesion of the adhesive without penetration to the substrate.

The boundary layer refers to a thin layer corresponding to the interfaces between the substrate and the adhesive where are all the forces mentioned above.
