C-XVIPolymer joining and adhesive technology

 Terms of Reference

Commission XVI is a Working Unit which focuses on the areas of polymer joining and adhesive technology. Both of these fields are dedicated to series production which necessitates high automation levels. It provides an interesting forum for high level discussions among the world´s leading scientists, who represent the very small scientific communities involved in these spheres of materials joining. Developments over the past years have increased the importance of polymer joining and adhesive technology with modern hybrid materials and fibre-reinforced plastics.
