Surface Preparation

ADHESIVE BONDING: How much Surface Preparation do I really need?

Often the key question in adhesive bonding is how to prepare a substrate to achieve optimal adhesion. There are many approaches to this challenge; from the risks of no preparation; to using advanced adhesives matched to substrates that often don't require surface preparation; to using robust chemical etch systems in the aerospace industry. In this webinar we will attempt to highlight some of the technologies for surface preparation for adhesive bonding with a balanced view of robustness and risk management.
