Structural Acrylic Adhesive Formulation and Use

9 Days left to register

Thursday May 20, 2021

Capitalize on the full potential of thermosetting acrylics to develop new, high-performing structural adhesives that meet your customer's needs (bonding composites, low surface energy plastics for lightweight part design)

Ed Petrie will provide a concise guide to formulating & selection of thermosetting acrylic adhesives. He will cover the core chemistry, base materials, significant variables to control processing & final properties. Also, learn about impact of environmental factors (stress, temp., moisture...) and the pros & cons over epoxy & PU adhesives.

Why should you attend?

With continued adoption of difficult to bond materials (LSE plastics & composites), especially in automotive & transportation sector, you are required to design newer structural adhesives formulations.

These must align with your customers needs to achieve a good bond while getting added properties (improved temperature resistance, flexibility...).

This is the stage you need to consider thermosetting acrylics. They offer newer properties, while matching the performance of epoxy & PU adhesives. But the formulation principles and components can be very complex!

Additionally with limited books available on this subject, acquiring the right knowledge to successfully design new formulations is a critical challenge. Be an early adopter & capitalize on the full potential of this technology to meet your customer needs better! Join this course now to:

  • Acquire a concise guide to formulating and selection of thermosetting acrylic adhesives (core chemistry, base materials, formulation principles…)

  • Meet your customer’s needs by developing new, high-performing structural adhesives that bond well to contaminated and low energy substrates (plastics, composites)

  • Stay ahead of competition as you adopt thermosetting acrylics technology to combining newer properties (improved temperature resistance, flexibility...) with performance levels of epoxy & PU adhesives

Who should attend?

This course is useful for adhesives formulators and end users working in epoxy & PU adhesives industry. This course is also beneficial for professionals in technical sales & manufacturing, and for raw material producers / suppliers.
