Welcome to our eLearning Academy. Here, you’ll find courses that will expand your knowledge of bonding solutions: how they work, what might go wrong and products to consider for various applications.
On one level, adhesion is simple – everyone has taped or glued things together. But understanding why adhesives stick, choosing the right adhesives and making them work better for your process is a more complicated story involving science, engineering and design.
The education series below are designed to provide much more than a definition of adhesive science, but rather a better understanding of the science of adhesion. Whether you want to review everything in order or just pick and choose the topics you need, we hope you’ll find this material to be useful and informative.
