Gluing is an effective joining method if the plastic components to be joined are sensitive to heat, which makes welding impossible. There are typically three gluing processes namely solvent bonding, adhesive bonding and double-sided tape bonding.


Solvent bonding is also called solvent welding. A suitable solvent is applied to the surfaces of the parts, and then swells and softens the surfaces. After pressing of the parts and evaporation of the solvent, the two parts are then bond.


Adhesive bonding is widely used for many different types of plastics, but it is never as easy as it looks. The bonding quality is affected by many parameters such as type of adhesive, the viscosity, quality of curing, and even the wetting of the surface.


Double-sided tapes are tapes with adhesive coated on both sides, which can join different materials and ensure controllable assembly.


There are pros and cons to all these methods, and detailed discussions are recommended to find out the best suitable gluing process technically and economically for you. Because gluing typically requires certain level of manual work, there are certainly areas that can offer drastic cost saving.
