Adhesive and Sealant


Adhesive
Adhesive or glue is a compound in a liquid or semi-liquid state that adheres or bonds items together. Adhesives may come from either natural or synthetic sources. The types of materials that can be bonded using adhesives is virtually limitless, but they are especially useful for bonding thin materials. Adhesives usually require a controlled temperature and temperature to cure or set. They can be electrically and thermally conductive or nonconductive

Sealant
A sealant is a viscous material that changes state to become solid, once applied, and is used to prevent the penetration of air, gas, noise, dust, fire, smoke or liquid from one location through a barrier into another. Typically, sealants are used to close small openings that are difficult to shut with other materials, such as concrete, drywall, etc. Desirable properties of sealants include insolubility, corrosion resistance, and adhesion. Uses of sealants vary widely and sealants are used in many industries, for example, construction automotive and aerospace industries.
