Understanding the Bond Surface of Composites

The Importance of Understanding and Controlling the Bond Surface

 

BTG Labs will host their second webinar with Composites World. The webinar, “Understanding and Controlling the Bond Surface in Manufacturing for Reliable Adhesive Bonding of Composites” takes place October 6th at 2:00pm (ET). BTG’s CEO and Chief Scientist, Dr. Giles Dillingham will address bonding composites and the characteristics of surfaces with the potential to bond well. Understanding and controlling bond surfaces is the only way to ensure a successful and reliable bond.

Forming Reliable Adhesive Bonding of Composites

 

The surface of a material must exhibit a certain level of surface energy or surface cleanliness in order to bond successfully. Consequently, there exist several common industry practices for surface preparation. Dr. Dillingham will discuss these methods and others to obtain desired surface energy. Furthermore, he will detail how the Surface Analyst confirms the success of these surface processes and quantify the results.

The last webinar with Composites World attracted attention from over 500 people. BTG Labs looks forward to another successful webinar concluding with a question and answer session. The last webinar may be viewed here.
