Adhesive problem? What’s the cure?

The use of adhesives for structural bonding is on the increase. For a successful assembly, the adhesive must “harden” in the bondline to provide a joint which is capable of bearing the forces to which it is subjected for its lifetime, whatever environmental factors are thrown at it. Understanding how this works is important both for adhesive selection, and specification of the bonding process.
