Structural adhesives have continued to replace mechanical fasteners in many applications due to their high strength, ability to join dissimilar materials without corrosion issues, distribute stresses for longer fatigue life and survive in adverse environments over the lifetime of the product. The choice of adhesive type is dependent on the mechanical, chemical and environmental challenges for each application. It is therefore necessary to have fundamental knowledge of resin chemistry, formulating and testing requirements for optimum performance.
This short course is designed to enhance your ability to select, test, use and troubleshoot adhesives in structural applications in the transportation and assembly markets.

This course is ideal for technical professionals involved with selecting, formulating and/or implementing structural adhesive technologies. Business professionals would also benefit by increasing technical depth, however, the academic session will include very robust fundamentals on rheology and bond mechanics.
Participants will have the added benefit of valuable networking with the expert presenters, new and experienced attendees in both technical and business roles.
