Natural and synthetic
glues with many different compositions are used in many
products. The ease of use and the strength of glue makes
it a perfect and inexpensive choice for fastening
different materials. With growing use of glue in
different products it becomes necessary to study the
safety, reliability and the strength of different glue
in different temperatures. After all glues are polymers
(like plastics) and polymers are often sensitive to the
Heat can melt, soften,
decompose and deform many polymers. How does heat affect glue?
Is it possible that glued parts will come apart if they get warm
or hot? How strong are glues at different temperatures?
