Contributions from more than 60 authors, each a well-known specialist in their field, have been co-ordinated to produce the most comprehensive Handbook of Adhesives and Sealants ever published. The handbook will be published as 8 volumes, over a period of 4 years and will contain over 2800 pages, rich with case studies, industrial applications and the latest research. It is a work in progress, enabling the latest new and important applications to be included as they happen.
Volume 2 of Elsevier’s Handbook of Adhesives & Sealants Series, General knowledge, application of adhesives & new curing techniques, covers the mechanisms of adhesion, its application, and drying and curing techniques. The volume is divided in to the following sections:
• Theory of adhesion
• Metering and dispensing
• Design and calculation of bonded joints
• Heat stable adhesives
• UV curing
• Flexible bonding and sealants
Each contributing author is a scientist, practitioner, engineer, or chemist with an abundance of practical experience in their respective field, making this text an authoritative reference source for any materials scientist or engineer, whether in academia or industry.
Materials scientists, mechanical engineers, structural and civil engineers, production scientists. Anyone with an invested interest in adhesion at a production or idustrial level.
