Robert P. Jackson, PE
This course is written specifically for the purpose of providing a basic understanding of adhesive systems. It is a very broad subject so we are limiting the descriptive information to adhesives only and omitting sealants, thread locking adhesives, potting compounds, encapsulating compounds, gasketing materials, etc. These subjects are very interesting but complex to the point of deserving a more detailed look on an individual basis. We will concentrate solely on adhesives products used for bonding two or more substrates together. When we say systems, we are referring to 1.) Adhesives types and selection, 2.) Cleaning and pretreatment of substrates and 3.) Joint design. All three areas are integral to successful bonding, and accomplished properly, can provide for prolonged operational life. We also cover adhesive history, global markets, adhesive uses, standards and testing methods and equipment. By the end of the course, we want to impart a fundamental understanding of an industry that has significant annual growth and represents an important technology. We hope to pique your interest to the point of wanting to know more and providing a solid foundation upon which to build.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
