Adhesives, Ceramics, & Glass Manufacturers

Industrial materials and adhesives encompass a wide range of substances that are necessary to many types of industrial applications. Although the category of materials is incredibly broad, and could include anything from plastics, metal, rubber and more, chemicals and adhesives are more specific in terms of the necessary characteristics of those specific substances. The term “adhesives” refers to materials that unite or bond surfaces together and can include such materials as acrylic adhesives. However, common industrial adhesives are often categorized as either a plastic adhesive, such as those made from thermoplastic resins, or an epoxy adhesive , such as Bisphenol A. Essential in numerous applications, some examples of industries in which materials and adhesives are critical components include wastewater, chemical processing, marine, automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical and electronics.

Types of Adhesives, Ceramics, & Glass:

Adhesives

Adhesives are compounds that are used to bond two objects together. The type of adhesive used is based on a number of different factors primarily the strength of the bond required and the two objects involved with the bonding. Adhesive types are generally grouped as reactive, pressure-sensitive, thermoplastic, light-curing, and drying. Adhesives can be used for temporary bonding or permanent bonding and typically there are three styles of industrial adhesives which include silicone adhesives, acrylic adhesives and polyurethane adhesives.

Glass Manufacturing

There are a variety of methods that can be used when it comes to the glass manufacturing process whether for industrial, scientific, or traditional purposes such as windows and drinking-glasses. The same three ingredients are used in most of these processes and these consist of sand, alkali-based sodium bicarbonate (or "soda ash") and lime from limestone. The soda ash is used to lower the initial melting point, but it can make glass water soluble. The addition of lime or aluminum oxide (has greater chemical stability) is a means to prevent the glass from becoming water soluble. Furnaces at temperatures around 2,500º Fahrenheit fuse these three ingredients together, and at this point other ingredients may be added to adjust brilliance and color. The glass is then cooled by several hundred degrees to allow it to be shaped whether by pressing, blowing, or drawing.
