  • Understanding Composite Materials: Classifications
    the broad material category of flexible composites that make classification and standardization a challenge. For example, one subset of composite materials has an adhesive coating that changes from an un-tacky coating to a tacky adhesive coating when exposed to a given set of environmental conditions. So
  • Joining Composites
    Mechanical fasteners, adhesives, or both are used to join composites. The joining technique used on a particular composite depends on the application and the material composition. For instance, composites used in aircraft are usually joined by a combination of mechanical fasteners and adhesives
  • Bonds that take a beating
    Today 's structural adhesives can be stronger than the parts they join. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman The Italian manufacture of Drop surfboards bonds rubber substrates to the fiberglass/epoxy composite board tail using methacrylate adhesives. The adhesives cure quickly and give good longlasting
  • Rapid-prototyping resin good enough for wind-tunnel tests
    director of Provel. The accuracy of the Somos composite resin, as well as an adhesive that was adapted for the material, helped ensure an even, high-quality surface finish. "The prototype was ready for tests in less than half the time needed for traditional techniques," says Buson. "The entire
