Session Description:

Exposure to water either directly or via humidity can seriously decrease the strength of an adhesive joint. Although moisture can attack in several ways, it is most often the adhesive-adherent interface that is weakened. The amount of moisture in the adhesive can be measured, but the concentration of moisture at the interface may be quite different. Using a new technology that measures the moisture concentration, Don will examine the factors that influence durability: the nature of the adhesive, the type of substrate and the concentration of water. The results show an important tradeoff between joint strength and durability. Based on this knowledge, approaches to improving this tradeoff will be discussed.
