Smithers Rapra Publishing (Shropshire, U.K. and Akron, Ohio) has announced the release of a new title in its “Update” series, Update on Engineering and Structural Adhesives. The book covers anaerobics, epoxies, reactive acrylics, UV light-cured adhesives, polyurethanes and reactive hot-melt polyurethanes, plus special formulations of cyanoacrylates. It covers the basic chemistry, applications, advances in technology and durability testing of these adhesives. Important breakthrough technologies are highlighted, such as the use of organoboranes as initiators for the bonding of low-surface-energy plastics and the use of nanotechnology to improve properties. Key papers and patents are cited for each development.
