Advantages of Adhesive Bonding

There are many advantages to adhesive bonding. Here are six to consider.

  1. The bond is continuous: On loading, there is more uniform distribution of stresses over the bonded area. Bonded structures can consequently offer a longer life under load.
  2. Stiffer structures: The bonded joint – being continuous, produces a stiffer structure.
  3. Improved appearance: Adhesive bonding gives a smooth appearance to designs. There are no protruding fasteners such as screws or rivets, and no spot-welds marks.
  4. Dissimilar materials: Adhesives can join different materials together – materials that may differ in composition, moduli, coefficients of expansion, or thickness.
  5. Reduced corrosion: The continuous adhesive bond forms a seal. The joint is consequently leak-proof and less prone to corrosion.
  6. Electrically insulating: The adhesive bond can provide an electrically insulating barrier between the surfaces.
