Master the flow of your adhesives

Description:

Adhesives are used to connect surfaces. Usually, adhesives are applied as a liquid and harden subsequently. The curing process may occur due to temperature changes, by evaporation of solvents, humidity- or UV-light-induced chemical reactions, or just with time through the contact between adhesive and substrate.

Did you ever ask yourself how your adhesives quality control or R&D processes can benefit from rheology? From quality or process control at the production line-up to specific measurements in the development process of new products – register today and learn how Anton Paar rheometers and viscometers can help you accomplish your measuring tasks.

Covered topics include, amongst others, the following:

  • Your epoxy resin is too thin or too thick for application
  • A spray adhesive cannot be pumped or sprayed
  • The sealant does not spread on the gluing surface
  • The pot life of your adhesive is too short
  • A resin is too thin for application at 40 °C
  • The two-component adhesive hardens before application is finished
  • Two connected parts detach after glue application as the curing process is too slow
  • The shelf life of your adhesive is limited due to demixing
  • The hotmelt detaches when the room temperature is too high
  • You want to optimize the application of your UV- or humidity-curing adhesive
  • The adhesive tape breaks off when stretched under load
  • Powder raw material cannot be pumped

Trainer: Dr. Christopher Giehl

Dr. Christopher Giehl, born in 1984, has been working for Anton Paar Germany GmbH since 2018 as a trainer and product specialist for rheometry. He studied Mineralogy with a major in Material Sciences (Diploma 2010), holds a doctorate awarded by University of Tübingen (2014), and was a Lab Manager and Assistant Professor for Experimental Mineralogy (2014 to 2017) at Kiel University. He has been working on high-temperature glass and ceramics synthesis, glass transition, crystallization and immiscibility of glass melts, slags and metal melts, interaction of volcanic ash in jet turbine engines, the development of analytical methods, as well as thermal expansion and corrosion of materials. At Anton Paar, he is responsible for training and education, research and application development for food, paints, coatings, and adhesives, as well as for high-temperature rheometry.
