The textbook Formulating Adhesives and Sealants: Chemistry, Physics and Applications discusses the principles underlying adhesive and sealant formulation. The book describes adhesives and sealants from the chemist's point of view, focusing on the composition and ingredients of the various types of adhesives. It informs about their chemical structure and functional groups and explains how these give rise to the resulting properties.
Furthermore, the book gives formulation advice and, if possible, an analysis of existing recipes. A further chapter presents the design and testing of adhesive joints. The book offers an easy introduction to adhesives and sealants formulation, and also provides knowledge transfer and consolidation into the subject.
