3.4 Optimization

This means:

  • Joint design for shear and compressive forces *
  • Adequate dimensioning of the bonding area
  • Adapting the adhesive film thickness to the expected load s
  • Avoiding peel stress es
  • Protection of adhesive films, if necessary, from harmful media and radiation
  • Avoiding hollow spaces

*Solely tensile stress es are in principle also unproblematic, but this situation seldom occurs.
