Topics covered include contact, hot melt and toughened adhesives in addition to the preparation and curing of silicon polymers for adhesives, etc. These materials are in use in a wide variety of industries and in many cases to utilise the technology requires an understanding of the basic chemistry. This book provides an ideal overview. The related problem of adhesion by marine organisms is also discussed. The chemical treatments necessary to obtain particular properties e.g. high sheer and high peel strengths are also covered.
