  • Medical applications are expected to exhibit faster growth than other applications. This segment was worth an estimated $1 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach nearly 1.3 billion in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%.
  • The construction segment will grow at a 4.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the 5-year forecast period. This segment was worth $4.8 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach a value of $6.2 billion in 2015.

Introduction

Adhesives are substances capable of holding materials together in a useful manner by surface attachment. The principal attribute of adhesives is their ability to form strong bonds with the surfaces of a wide range of materials and to retain bond strength under expected use conditions. Most adhesives do not have excellent bulk properties; therefore, it is important to keep adhesive films thin. Some materials, such as epoxies, have bulk properties that qualify them as engineering materials and thus can be used in multifunctional applications. Adhesive is a general term and includes among others cement, glue, mucilage, and paste. All of these terms are loosely used interchangeably.

The principal advantages of adhesives are listed below:

  • Ability to bond similar to dissimilar materials of different thickness
  • Enable the fabrication of complex shapes not feasible by other fastening means
  • Smooth external joint surfaces
  • Permit economic and rapid assembly
  • Distribute stresses uniformly cover joined interfaces
  • Provide weight reduction in critical structures via the elimination of fasteners
  • Dampen vibrations
  • Prevent or reduce galvanic corrosion
  • Provide thermal and electrical insulation

The limitations of adhesives depend on the specific adhesive and application and may include the necessity of surface preparation, long curing times, service-temperature limitations, loss of properties during service, toxicity of flammability during assembly or use, and the tendency of many adhesives to creep under sustained load.

A sealant is a soft, pliable material that is used to seal cracks of joints where structural strength is not required. The sealant, initially fluid or semifluid, placed between two opposing solid materials, becomes solid itself (by solvent evaporation or chemical reaction), bonds to the surfaces it is applied to and accommodates joint movement. It prevents excessive absorption of adhesive or penetration of liquid or gaseous substances. A sealant has the adhesive and cohesive properties to form a seal and is used to create an impenetrable barrier to gas or moisture.
