When it comes to the design and development of new products, and choosing an adhesive to bond them together, an adhesive supplier often finds themselves as the last port of call.
This approach can leave you in a position where your list of requirements severely limits the adhesives suitable for your application. Bondline design, substrate compatibility and environmental resistances sometimes mean there isn’t an adhesive that fits without major compromise, which could result in critical design changes, and delayed projects. Leaving development of the bonding process too late can often prove expensive.
In our whitepaper, ‘Adhesive considerations at the design stage’, Peter Swanson explains some of the benefits of considering adhesives early on in your projects and how these can mitigate the risk of many future complications, saving you both time and money.
