- This book explains the physics and chemistry of adhesion, surface preparation and tests. It presents new strategies for formulating superior strong, weak and pressure-sensitive adhesives. It also includes access to unique electronic apps that enable numerical modeling of adhesives This book explains the basic principles of adhesion and shows how they are used to formulate and improve adhesives. This book starts by laying out key physical and chemical concepts underlying adhesion and adhesives, including strong and weak bonds plus pressure-sensitive (PSA) across multiple polymer, metal and ceramic adherends. The ideas are expressed in clear and easily understood mathematical formulas that explain surface properties as well as good and bad adhesion, with the latter covering multiple types of adhesive failure. In this context, the book presents a detailed explanation of methods to predict, test and formulate adhesives and critically analyzes test results and traditionally accepted rules for adhesive formulation.
