Taking a Shortcut by Using Hot Melt Adhesives Pressure sensitive hot melt adhesives (PSA) tapes are widely used in the domestic appliances industry for quick attachment of decorative panels, touch screens, covers, trims and many other applications. Sika believes that there is a more cost efficient solution to tapes by removing the carrier and applying the hot melt adhesive directly to the components. This has several technical advantages and brings significant cost savings: • Manual or fully automated application is possible by elimination of the release paper. • The adhesive still allows...

One Component Versus two Component Adhesives The chemical reaction in a one component adhesive is initiated by moisture, taken either from the substrate where the adhesive is applied, or from the atmospheric air. The adhesive bead starts to cure from the outside at a typical speed of 3 to 5 mm per day, depending on ambient conditions. This process can be accelerated by applying heat or extra moisture. Two component adhesives start curing when mixed together and the speed of this reaction can be tailored to suit almost any particular process need. Fast assembly lines will use extremely fast...

From Mechanical Fixation to Bonding The heavy counter weight for washing machines are typically mechanically connected on the drum assembly. The mass of the counter weight has had to increase due to higher spin speeds of washing machines. Conventional joining methods such as screwing, bolting or welding leads to high stress concentrations in the connections between the counter weight and the drum assembly, that can form cracks either in the drum or the concrete counter weight. To ensure a durable connection and maximize the service life of the materials, the parts should be bonded in order...
