Bonding is playing an ever greater role in industrial production. Compared with traditional joining techniques such as screwing or welding, components do not need to be drilled or heated during the bonding process. Also, different types of material can be bonded and sealed against liquid ingress, which is an essential requirement in lightweight construction. 

The adhesives commonly found in the market either offer short assembly times and thus cure faster, or they have long assembly times and long curing times that can be accelerated using heat.
