The report covers the state of the art of adhesive bonding of titanium and its alloys and is oriented toward the interests of the designer and the manufacturing engineer. In it are described typical joint designs, surface preparation procedures, types of adhesives used for bonding, environmental factors as they influence choice among available adhesives, processing techniques, representative applications of adhesive bonding, and available test results on adhesive-bonded titanium alloys.

A comprehensive guide to successfully complete any adhesive bonding project In Adhesive Bonding in Five Steps: Achieving Safe and High Quality Bonds, accomplished chemist Dr. Jürgen Klingen delivers a thorough and practical overview of the adhesive concepts necessary for readers to design and sketch foundational steps in projects involving adhesive bonding. Readers will learn the complex considerations necessary for a successful adhesive bonding process from inception to completion. Dividing the adhesive bonding project into five clearly defined phases—planning, substrate concept, adhesive concept, feasibility, and development—the author demonstrates how to adhere to quality requirements while completing the reader’s own adhesive bonding processes. The book focuses on the treatment of the material surfaces to be bonded, the selection of suitable adhesives, the dimensioning of the bond, and the process steps for metering/mixing and curing the adhesives. The book also offers: A thorough introduction to the art and science of adhesive bonding, including adhesives, adhesive bonds, bonding in industry and craft, and an example of adhesive bonding in nature Comprehensive explorations of the history of adhesive bonding technology and wetting, adhesion, and cohesion Practical discussions of the necessary steps to achieving safe and high-quality adhesive bonds, including gate reviews and the DIN 2304 In-depth examinations of contemporary adhesive bonding applications, including examples in lightweight construction, modern façade construction, and low-energy plastics Perfect for engineers, engineering scientists, polymer chemists, and process engineers, Adhesive Bonding in Five Steps: Achieving Safe and High Quality Bonds will also prove to be an invaluable addition to the libraries of materials scientists and surface chemists.

Adhesive bonding is often effective, efficient, and often necessary way to join mechanical structures. This important book reviews the most recent improvements in adhesive bonding and their wide-ranging potential in structural engineering. Part one reviews advances in the most commonly used groups of structural adhesives with chapters covering topics such as epoxy, polyurethane, silicone, cyanoacrylate, and acrylic adhesives. The second set of chapters covers the various types of adherends and pre-treatment methods for a range of structural materials such as metals, composites and plastics. Chapters in Part three analyse methods and techniques with topics on joint design, life prediction, fracture mechanics and testing. The final group of chapters gives useful and practical insights into the problems and solutions of adhesive bonding in a variety of hostile environments such as chemical, wet and extreme temperatures. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Advances in structural adhesive bonding is a standard reference for structural and chemical engineers in industry and the academic sector. Reviews advances in the most commonly used groups of structural adhesives including epoxy, silicone and acrylic adhesives Examines key issues in adhesive selection featuring substrate compatibility and manufacturing demands Documents advances in bonding metals, plastics and composites recognising problems and limitations

Aimed at engineers and materials scientists in a wide range of sectors, this book is a unique source of surface preparation principles and techniques for plastics, thermosets, elastomers, ceramics and metals bonding. With emphasis on the practical, it draws together the technical principles of surface science and surface treatments technologies to enable practitioners to improve existing surface preparation processes to improve adhesion and, as a result, enhance product life. This book describes and illustrates the surface preparations and operations that must be applied to a surface before acceptable adhesive bonding is achieved. It is meant to be an exhaustive overview, including more detailed explanation where necessary, in a continuous and logical progression. The book provides a necessary grounding in the science and practice of adhesion, without which adequate surface preparation is impossible. Surface characterization techniques are included, as is an up-to-date assessment of existing surface treatment technologies such as Atmospheric Plasma, Degreasing, Grit blasting, laser ablation and more. Fundamental material considerations are prioritised over specific applications, making this book relevant to all industries using adhesives, such as medical, automotive, aerospace, packaging and electronics. This second edition represents a full and detailed update, with all major developments in the field included and three chapters added to cover ceramic surface treatment, plasma treatment of non-metallic materials, and the effect of additives on surface properties of plastics. A vital resource for improving existing surface treatment processes to increase product life by creating stronger, more durable adhesive bonds Relevant across a variety of industries, including medical, automotive and packaging Provides essential grounding in the science of surface adhesion, and details how this links with the practice of surface treatment

For several years, I have been responsible for organizing and teaching in the fall a short course on "Fundamentals of Adhesion: Theory, Practice, and Applications" at the State University of New York at New Paltz. Every spring I would try to assemble the most pertinent subjects and line up several capable lecturers for the course. However, there has always been one thing missing-an authoritative book that covers most aspects of adhesion and adhesive bonding. Such a book would be used by the participants as a main reference throughout the course and kept as a sourcebook after the course had been completed. On the other hand, this book could not be one of those "All you want to know about" volumes, simply because adhesion is an interdisciplinary and ever-growing field. For the same reason, it would be very difficult for a single individual, especially me, to undertake the task of writing such a book. Thus, I relied on the principle that one leaves the truly monumental jobs to experts, and I finally succeeded in asking several leading scientists in the field of adhesion to write separate chapters for this collection. Some chapters emphasize theoretical concepts and others experimental techniques. In the humble beginning, we planned to include only twelve chapters. However, we soon realized that such a plan would leave too much ground uncovered, and we resolved to increase the coverage. After the book had evolved into thirty chapters, we started to feel that perhaps our mission had been accomplished.
