As one of the oldest joining techniques, Adhesive Bonding (also referred to as gluing or glue bonding) already enjoys a broad applicability and yet its potential seems far from being exhausted. Research done on the use of organic and inorganic adhesives keeps yielding new results which are particularly relevant for industrial applications.
Bonding with organic and inorganic adhesives
Our investigations within this field address, among other things, unresolved issues regarding hybrid bonded joints, specific surface modifications and new possibilities of application. Furthermore, as part of our close research collaborations with various industry partners, we provide customized technical solutions to specific requirements and problems.
