Over the last century, adhesive use has become increasingly popular over other
assembly methods for structural design. To meet the demands of the latest product
designs and manufacturing processes, new adhesives are continually being formulated.
Current cyanoacrylate and epoxy technologies have proved to be valuable in today’s
largest manufacturing companies. Despite the many advantages, each technology still
has its disadvantages that limit the materials and situations in which it is used. The
recent advancement in hybrid adhesive technologies has allowed manufacturers to
overcome limitations by increasing manufacturing speeds and assembly durability. New
structural instant adhesives, hybrids of epoxy and cyanoacrylate technologies, can be
used to meet the demands of present and future production requirements.
