Scholarcy highlights

  • Over the last decade, or so, the growth in the use of adhesives, especially in ever more technically demanding applications, has been rapid and many major developments in the technology of adhesives have been reported
  • Specific surface analytical techniques, such as X-ray photoelectron and secondary-ion mass spectroscopy, and the increasingly sophisticated methods of stress analysis and fracture mechanics have been put to good use in furthering our understanding of the science of adhesion and adhesives
  • The present book attempts to review the multidisciplined subject of adhesion and adhesives, considering both the science and technology involved in the formation and mechanical performance of adhesive joints
  • - Journal of Adhesion; ...a wealth of tables, ghraphs and photos to support the text,and each chapter has extensive formulations...an essential reference text...an excellent source book for those wishing to learn more than the basics of adhesive technology...VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
