EC Library Formulating Adhesives and Sealants


Formulating Adhesives and Sealants

This book teaches adhesive and sealant formulation in two steps. Each section first describes the application and chemical basis of the type of adhesive or sealant concerned. This is followed by formulation advice and - if possible - an analysis of existing recipes. This analysis includes a calculation of the important characteristic values of the formulations. All calculations based on recipes and formulations are worked through step by step and should therefore be intelligible to beginners, too.
