An adhesive is used in order to bond two substances together. To enable the bonding the adhesive has to have surface adhesion and cohesion.
This means that the adhesive used must be able to develop an adhesion to the substrate and after setting it has to have the required bond strength (cohesion).The wet ability depends on the adhesives and the substrates surface energy.
The adhesive, therefore, needs to have a lower surface energy than the substrate. The lower energy is a necessity, because nature aims to obtain a decrease in total energy.The durability of an adhesive joint is affected by other factors as well, for example the application which it is used for (indoors or outdoors), the load it has to bear and the temperature it will be exposed to.In addition to good adhesion and cohesion, there are other requirements on adhesives as well. For example the adhesive needs to be able to go through processing that is normal in adhesive manufacturing and have a reasonable price. Thus, as an entrepreneur this project offers an exciting opportunity to you.
