Composition of reactive sealants and adhesives

| 9 October 2019 |

Forever together

Adhesives and sealants surround us in our daily lives. They are used in high-tech applications such as aeronautics and in architecture and can also be found in the hands of children as they learn to express their creativity. This seminar will familiarise you with the most important types of adhesives and sealants, focusing on the composition and ingredients, their chemical structures and functional groups. After attending this seminar, you will be able to clearly work out the properties conferred by each type. With the aid of practical formulation tips, you will be able to analyse guide recipes and patent examples and learn how to calculate key recipe parameters step by step. This seminar will help you to approach formulating confidently and competently!

Your key-learnings:

  • How do adhesives and sealants set?
  • What is adhesion and how do adhesion promoters work?
  • What is the chemistry behind epoxy adhesives and what distinguishes them from other reactive adhesives?
  • What types of adhesive sealants are used in the automotive industry?
  • What is so special about sealants for multipanel insulated glazing?
  • What distinguishes polyurethane construction sealants?
