Adhesive bonding is the oldest joining technology used and at the same time a very modern technique with a strongly increasing number of applications. Today it is an indispensable alternative and supplement to other joining processes in industrial production.
We find suitable adhesives for the requirements of our customers and enable their successful application in their processes. We also provide our measuring technology for the ageing prediction of bonded joints and interpret damage patterns. Within the scope of industrial contract research we develop solutions for the special bonding ideas of our customers. With our expertise from publicly funded research projects, we can find optimal solutions for our customers and partners to make adhesive applications conform to standards.
Our plant technology at ifw Jena enables us to determine the properties, potential and limits of various adhesive solutions using a wide range of measurement options. These include:
