This second edition includes many new articles covering developments which have risen in prominence in the intervening years, such as scanning probe techniques, the surface forces apparatus and the relation between adhesion and fractal surfaces. Advances in understanding polymer polymer interdiffusion are reflected in articles drawing out the implications for adhesive bonding. In addition, articles derived from the earlier edition have been revised and updated where needed. Throughout the book there is a renewed emphasis on environmental implications of the use of adhesives and sealants.
The scope of the Handbook, which features nearly 250 articles from over 60 authors, includes the background science physics, chemistry and material science and engineering, and also aspects of adhesion relevant to the use of adhesives, including topics such as:
- Sealants and mastics
- Paints and coatings
- Printing and composite materials
- Welding and autohesion
- Engineering design
