Adhesive joints


I am looking for books which can give me details about typical load ranges, and bondline thicknesses in adhesively bonded joints. Can anyone suggest me some books.

Thanks in advance

Adhesive Joints: Formation, Characteristics and Testing by K. L. Mitall

It sounds like you want somthing that likely doesn't exist. At least in the way it was asked.


Go to

formatting link
and search for "adhesive joints" or "adhesively bonded joints".

The info you are seeking varies with the agent and the materials being bonded.

I suggest you contact manufacturers/suppliers of various types of bonding agents for their product data sheets.

I've worked during Materials Engineering University with adhesive joints. Some books are listed below.
