Today we would like to create a bond using an adhesive. First we need to decide what product will work for our application. For example, what surfaces are we bonding: metals, plastic, wood, something else or a combination of dissimilar surfaces? Are we trying to find a new process or replace an existing process? What is the current process? What do we manufacture? Are there hot or cold temperatures involved? Is there any solvent or chemical exposure? Is this an indoor or outdoor application? We also need to keep in mind UV and moisture exposure. How much surface area can we use to make the bond? What type of stresses will the bond see; peel, tensile, shear? How many units will we produce? How often; daily, weekly, monthly? How do we envision the process?
