  1. Forestry 485 Lecture 2-1: Introduction to Adhesion

  2. Adhesion • Adhesion – from the Latin adhaere, “to stick to” • In a practical sense, adhesion is the mechanism by which an adhesive transfers a load from an adherend to the adhesive joint -Packham, 1992

  3. Adherends=solid materials in the adhesive joint, other than the adhesive • Adhesive=(generally) polymeric materials that exhibit viscoelastic properties; capable of bonding to adherends and transferring load from the adherend to the adhesive joint • Adhesive joint=an assembly made by the use of an adhesive. Also called an adhesive bond. -Pocius, 2002

  4. “Adhesive bonding is a method by which materials can be joined to generate assemblies. Adhesive bonding is an alternative to more traditional mechanical methods of joining materials, such as nails, rivets, screws, etc.” -Pocius, 2002

  5. Two primary functions of an adhesive: • 1. Adequately bond to the surface of adherends • 2. Contribute appropriate mechanical properties upon curing (load transfer)

  6. Advantages and Disadvantages of Adhesive Bonding • Advantages: • Minimize stress concentrations • Viscoelastic behavior of adhesive contributes to absorption of applied mechanical load • Dissimilar materials can be joined

  7. Advantages and Disadvantages of Adhesive Bonding • Disadvantages: • Complex behavior at the surface of adherends; complex behavior of adhesive resin formulations • Adhesion occurs within a composite material; difficult to establish if proper bonding occurs
