The science behind adhesion – part 1: why things stick
We begin this consideration of the use of adhesives in footwear production by exploring the mechanism of adhesion.
This article – the first in a series – describes the different modes of adhesion and the intermolecular forces at play to explain why things stick. Later articles will explore how a good bond can be created and the factors that affect the strength of a bond over time and use.
