Composition of reactive sealants and adhesives

| 13. Nov 2018 |

Forever together

Bonding – It’s part and parcel of everyday life. Hardly any other field is as chemically and technically diverse as that of adhesives and sealants. This seminar will familiarise you with the most important types, focusing on the composition and ingredients of the different kinds of adhesive with their chemical structures and functional groups, so that you will be able to clearly deduce the resulting properties. Using practical formulation tips, you will analyse guide recipes and patent examples and learn to calculate key recipe parameters step by step. At the end of the seminar you will able 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?
  • How do I formulate adhesives and sealants?
  • How are specific properties controlled via the formulation?
  • How are adhesive bonds tested?
