Improving Plastics Adhesion: Surface Pre-treatment & Adhesives Selection

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Oct 23, 2018

Introduce adhesive bonding early in your part design process to avoid part failure when working with composites for lightweight solutions!

This New Course with, Francis Facon, will help you revamp your methodology & define your own bonding specifications & (pre-choice of adhesives, prototype testing…) to join complex composites in order to keep cost and weight low & design high performance parts!

Why should you view this course?

Working with plastics and composites can help lower weight and costs in your automotive parts manufacture. But their use makes the bonding processes difficult due to the low surface energy. Additionally, part design is made with computer aided engineering (CAE) and it’s not easy to do CAE on adhesives. And while designing a part, often bonding is considered as a secondary operation, which is a common mistake! And looking to adhesives suppliers for solutions doesn’t help either…

Save yourself from low impact resistance or part design failure! Join the course and:

  • Optimally join plastics (PE, PP, PA6, PA66…) & composites (mineral filled, fiber reinforced…) with better comprehension of adhesive bonding on low energy materials.

  • Select appropriate adhesives in advance & define your own bonding specifications with expert help rather than depending on adhesive suppliers for solutions.

  • Improve part performance by revamping your part design methodology for bonding between different components.
