Application and curing dynamics of adhesives are rarely quantified over a wide range of varying climactic conditions; yet, this information is critical to the final performance of the structural bond. There is a growing need among raw material suppliers, formulators, and applicators to better understand the performance of products under the extreme humidity and temperature conditions experienced during application. Both humidity and temperature play a considerable role on rheology dynamics, film formation on the substrate surface, curing dynamics, and the final performance of the cured adhesive. These effects are particularly magnified in water based chemistries.

In this webinar, we discuss the need throughout the different industry sectors to better understand climactic performance on application performance, the physics and chemistry of how climactic conditions impact the final adhesive performance, and the development of a chamber that is designed to test the application and curing performance of adhesives over a large range of humidity and temperature conditions.



  1. The roles temperature and humidity play during the adhesive application process.
  2. How these climactic factors affect the end performance of the cured adhesive bond.
  3. The interrelationship between pretreatment and climactic conditions that are present during application.
  4. Potential methodologies to mitigate these effects.
  5. The equipment that is available to study climactic effects on adhesive application and curing.
