Description

Suppose you want to find out if an adhesive joint is going to fail before you ever bond it together. Then you can do something about it before the bond is made and that is the kind of information that we are working on here. Consider an assembly line in a factory where you have surface preparations going on, and finally, you get to the point where an adhesive bond is going to be made. It would be very useful if just prior to bonding you had a technique for monitoring the surface to tell you whether the surface is, indeed, a proper surface for the bonding procedure. Any number of things could go wrong upstream; for example, you might have run out of solution in a tank or a tank had become contaminated.
