     Adhesives and sealants are distributed and applied in an immature state. They do not reach their full potential until they undergo a process called polymerization. Commonly called curing or crosslinking, polymerization is a physical or chemical change that alters material properties. Typically, this change hardens the substance and in the case of adhesives, results in a tougher, more resilient material with greater bonding capabilities.

   Many adhesive amateurs are intimidated by the prospect of misjudging the strength needed for an adhesive joint and instinctively request the strongest bond every time. Don’t make this mistake. Remember that adhesives, just like other tools, offer rewards when you use the best tool for the job. For example: using an adhesive with moderate strength will allow the end user or repair technicians to disassemble your product which can be an important feature and may add value to your design.
