Adhesion is, simply said, depending on the chemistry of the interphase and structure/morphology of the interface. A crucial first step to reach durable sealed and bonded joints is by definition the surface preparation. The failure of a sealing or bonded joint is for more than 90% of the cases related to an insufficient or wrong surface pretreatment.

There is a wide range of surface pretreatments, cleaners, activators and primers available in order to reach the required level of adhesion on different substrates. Rich-Bond has an extensive know-how of these steps in order to search and implement the right products and processes in the final production with the emphasis on limiting the impact on both the workers as well as the environment.
