The following glues are the most suitable
for demanding applications (high-tech or structural glues):
- acrylate glues,
- cyanoacrylate glues,
- epoxy resin glues,
- polyurethane glues,
- phenolic resin glues and
- polyester resin glues.
In order to select the appropriate glue it is important
that requirements of the joint are accurately profiled. It
is therefore necessary that stresses on the components, such
as mechanical or thermal stress, and any effects from the
surrounding media that may be relevant, are known.
Characteristic material values of the jointed parts, the surface
finish, the dimensions of the glued areas and the temperature
are also relevant to the properties of the resulting joint
and to the selection of the appropriate glue.
