VINCENTZ NETWORK: Formulating Adhesives and Sealants

May 20, 2010

A new book by Bodo Müller and Walter Rath examines adhesives and sealants from the chemist’s viewpoint.

Formulating Adhesives and Sealants focuses on the composition and ingredients of the various types of adhesive, their chemical structure and functional groups and clearly shows how these give rise to the resulting properties. The book explains adhesive and sealant formulation in two steps: the application and chemical basis of the type of adhesive or sealant concerned, followed by formulation advice and – if possible – an analysis of existing formulations. In addition, a chapter is devoted to the design and testing of adhesive joints.
