It also requires that the best surface preparation techniques be used. In this context, &ldquo;surface&rdquo; refers to the area and depth where the adhesive interacts with the substrate. The affinity of the adhesive with this surface ultimately determines bond strength. Whether bonding metals, plastics, or rubbers, proper surface preparation always plays an essential role in getting the best bond.</p></div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Adhesives Tue, 03 Feb 2015 17:06:00 +0000 45931 at
