0.3 Limitations of adhesive bonding technology

Technological limitations

  • Limited thermal loads

  • Limited long-term stability due to ageing
  • In general cannot be detached on demand
  • Conclusions about the joint strength and <adhesion only possible using destructive tests

Process limitations

  • Many adhesives and auxiliary materials (cleaning agents, primers, etc.) are hazardous materials → Special measures required
  • In general, joints cannot be subjected to loads immediately after bonding → Fixing necessary
  • High process requirements (many quality-determining parameters can only be measured using destructive tests)
