What is a Structural Adhesive?

Structural adhesives are an adhesive that cures or hardens into a material capable of holding two or more substrates together, for the lifetime of the product. They may be called a “load bearing” adhesive. The product should be able to sustain shock, vibration, chemical exposure, temperature extremes and many other types of weakening or destructive agents. The substrates involved can be the same or very different. This can range from metals, plastics, glass, rubbers, ceramics or composites.
