Webinar: Commonly Overlooked Variables that Affect Composite Adhesion

Join Dr. Giles Dillingham Tuesday June 4th at 2 p.m. U.S. EDT.

In this webinar you'll discover unnoticed yet critical points throughout manufacturing processes involving bonding, coating, cleaning and sealing of composites, that have a great effect on adhesion outcomes. These points are often neglected but when they are properly inspected and their impact on adhesion is understood, they can lead to manufacturers gaining total control over the surface quality of their materials and reliability of their products

BTG Labs will be hosting the webinar through Composites WorldControl your adhesion process by looking at non-obvious variables that affect adhesion and will end with a Q&A session. 

Register here. Everyone who registers will receive access to a recording of the presentation afterward.

Keep reading below for a full summary of the webinar topic.

Surface preparation for aerospace and automotive bonding and coating operations are still largely manual processes. These processes are effective if implemented with proper process control feedback. Success in the development laboratory doesn't always translate into reliable manufacturing processes. Root cause analysis has shown that this usually stems directly from a lack of knowledge of all of the variables that can affect the success of a surface preparation process. Variables, when not identified, cannot be measured and controlled.

Primary Topics:
1. Develop a conceptual understanding of bonding and coating processes
2. Gain an awareness of non-obvious variables that affect reliability of adhesion

Presenter: Dr. Giles Dillingham CEO and Chief Scientist

Giles Dillingham has worked in the areas of surfaces, interfaces, and adhesive bonding for 30 years, and has over 120 publications and patents in these areas. After receiving his Ph.D. in Materials Science from the University of Cincinnati in 1987, Dr. Dillingham worked in the Advanced Composites Laboratory of the Dow Chemical Company. Returning to Cincinnati he worked on plasma processing of materials and adhesive bonding of advanced composites while incorporating and growing BTG Labs since 2001.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to take control of your adhesion process and no longer be caught off guard by unexpected factors that could cause adhesion failure. Register now.
