CompositesWorld is presenting a free BTG Labs-sponsored webinar on Oct. 17 at 2:00 p.m. EDT titled, “Development and control of surface treatments for adhesive bonding of composites.”

Abstract: Successful adhesive bonding requires precise control of the physical and chemical properties of a vanishingly small volume of material — the first few molecular layers that surround the interface. This in turn requires developing a sensitivity to the factors that affect this region as well as imposing effective process control protocols. This webinar will review the requirements for high-performance surface treatment processes, strategies for developing these processes for new material systems, and protocols for control of these processes after implementation in manufacturing. 

Primary topics: 

  • Basic principles of adhesive bonding for joining composite structures 
  • Common composite surface preparation methods, their advantages and disadvantages 
  • Development of surface treatment processes: how to evaluate and optimize performance 
  • Deployment of adhesive bonding processes in manufacturing: how to ensure control to achieve consistent bond performance
