No fear of commitment: The advantages of chemical bonding over physical bonding
The first evidence of adhesive applications goes back about 45,000 years. With the increased use of modern adhesive technologies in the industry of today, the “gluing” of components is both one of the oldest and one of the most modern joining technologies.
In contrast to other joining methods, such as screwing or riveting, adhesion provides area bonding. This distributes the load over a larger area and prevents local overloading of the components.
