This webinar discusses the latest advances in structural adhesives for a range of design, manufacturing, and assembly applications. It includes an evaluation of fastening technologies, such as “instant” assembly methods using thermal joining, mechanical fastening, and tapes, as well as the benefits of new structural liquid adhesives. It offers insight into the role of the converter in the design process, from testing and materials and adhesive selection, to fabrication, manufacturing and assembly.
The webinar covers:
· The benefits and considerations of structural adhesives vs. alternative methods
· Strength and cost data for structural adhesives vs. mechanical fasteners, welding, and acrylic foam tapes
· Joint design guidelines
· Real life examples of structural adhesives in action
Attendees will learn why adhesives offer a cost advantage vs. traditional methods and how converters can play an important role in helping design engineers take advantage of structural adhesives for products and applications.
