The job of a structural adhesive is to transmit stress from one adherend to another. Unlike the bond of a nonload-carrying member--a label to a container, for example--the adhesive layer in a structural bond is a load-carrying element. For this reason, choosing the right adhesive isn't a matter of merely consulting a manufacturer's product catalog. The various mechanical and chemical factors interacting to affect the integrity of the joint--fatigue resistance, thermal expansion, cleanliness, load capacity--are reviewed.
