Natural and synthetic glues with
many different compositions are used in many products. The ease of
use and the strength of glue makes it a perfect and inexpensive
choice for fastening different materials. With growing use of glue in
different products it becomes necessary to study the safety,
reliability and the strength of different glue in different
temperatures. After all glues are polymers (like plastics) and
polymers are often sensitive to the heat.
Heat can melt, soften, decompose and
deform many polymers. How does heat affect glue? Is it possible that
glued parts will come apart if they get warm or hot? How strong are
glues at different temperatures?
