Handbook of Adhesion Technology
This new Springer publication, part of its series of highly respected Major Reference Works, will be the definitive reference in the field of adhesion. Adhesives have been used for thousands of years, though the last century has seen the development of a vast array of synthetic ones in addition to those naturally occurring. It is difficult to imagine a product—in the home, in industry, in transportation, or anywhere else for that matter—that does not use adhesives or sealants in some way. The subject is of interest to diverse scientific disciplines and important in a wide range of technologies, so this handbook covers the background science (physics, chemistry and materials science), the engineering aspects, and industry-specific applications. It is arranged in a user-friendly format and sub-divided into ten distinct sections, each of which contains several chapters written by internationally renowned authors who are authorities in their fields. The sections cover the entire range of adhesion-related subjects, including the theory of adhesion, surface treatments, adhesive and sealant materials, testing of adhesive properties, joint design, durability, manufacture,
Quick access to the knowledge
All-embracing, covering: theory, materials and surface treatment, testing and quality, manufacturing, storage, joints basics and manifold applications
Handy knowledge for the daily practice
This new Springer publication, part of its highly respected series of Major Reference Works, will be the definitive reference in the field of adhesion. With thousands of adhesive products now in use, both naturally occurring and synthetic, this is one reference work that is sure to have extremely broad appeal. It is difficult to imagine a product—in the home, in industry, in transportation, or anywhere else for that matter—that does not use adhesives or sealants in some way. Arranged in a user-friendly format and sub-divided into ten distinct sections, each of which contains chapters written by internationally renowned authorities in their fields, the book is a reference for people needing a quick, but authoritative, description of topics in adhesion as well as in the use of adhesives and sealants. It will be a valuable aid to scientists and engineers in a host of separate disciplines.
