Why should you view this course?

The start of a new structural epoxy adhesive…

You have your (very) long list of requirements to meet… Books or raw material suppliers are of little help to find how to match them all… Sound all too familiar? Learn from an experienced formulator, who understands what issues you're facing and who knows how to overcome them!

Join this course and:

  1. Solve faster your everyday challenges by wisely selecting the right ingredient at the right ratio: which class for which property/use…

  2. Save time formulating new epoxy-based adhesives by efficiently choosing the right system (resins, curative, hardener, stoichiometry…)

  3. Find creative solutions for your applications: automotive, airplane, electronic, building and construction, white goods...
Structural Epoxy Adhesives Formulation

Course Outline

The following sections will be covered during the Part 1 & Part 2 sessions.

  1. Introduction

  2. Details to be Considered During Development of an Epoxide Adhesive

  3. Epoxy Adhesives Chemistry and Their Areas of Application
    • Polyaddition (2-part adhesives, ambient cure, 1- part heat curing adhesives)
    • Cationic UV-curing epoxy adhesives

  4. Raw materials and their effect on the adhesive (structure-property relationship)
    • Epoxy Resin Chemistry
    • Epoxy Curing Agents (amines, polyamides, mercaptans, dicyandiamide, anhydrides, UV-cure initiators…)
    • Solvents and Dilutents

      ...to be continued in Part 2

    • Improvement in Flexibility / Toughening Agents
    • Fillers and Extenders
    • Adhesion Promoter
    • Processing aids

  5. Case Studies: How to design your epoxy adhesive formulations, starting with your list of requirements with 2 cases:
    • Low viscosity epoxy adhesive for concrete crack repair
    • Epoxy for automotive collision repair

  6. Hints and tips from personal experience as an epoxy adhesive formulator– Ask your questions directly to the expert in the Q&A sessions (30 mins each in both parts)
