Composites are extensively used in industry and promoting quality durable bonding is essential for durable and safe structures.

Drawing together two disciplines of adhesive/adhesion science and composite technology, this two-part webinar series aims to educate delegates on the advantages and problems of adhesive bonding associated with composite materials.

Featuring presentations from leading academic and industry figures, this webinar focuses predominantly on the design, testing and repair of composite bonding. 

By attending this webinar you will
  • Discover the latest research and development activities relating to joining and adhesive bonding of polymer composite materials
  • Gain awareness of benefits, issues and current limitations of adhesive bonding of composites relating to sustainability
  • Understand the career opportunities for students
Who should attend?

This webinar is targeted to adhesive developers and suppliers, surface treatment developers and users, designers of lightweight structures, research organisations working in the adhesion science area, alongside those working in structures for transport applications (e.g. aircraft, electric vehicles).

The content would also be of interest to academics, researchers and students who wish to further their careers in the disciplines of adhesive science and composite fabrication.
