The surface of an object is the first thing we see or touch. Nearly every article or object we encounter at home, in industry, land transportation, aerospace, or the medical field in some way uses an adhesive, a sealant, or a decorative coating. Adhesion science provides the technology and the know-how behind these applications. Recent Advances in Adhesion Science and Technology in Honor of Dr. Kash Mittal is dedicated to Dr. Mittal’s outstanding contributions to the global adhesion community and his achievements in disseminating the science of adhesion. This Festschrift volume contains selected papers from the Special Symposium on Recent Advances in Adhesion Science and Technology held in honor of Dr. Mittal to commemorate the publication of his 100th edited book. Written by world-renowned researchers, the papers have been updated for inclusion in this volume. They offer insight into recent developments and the significant ramifications to adhesion science and adhesive technology. Nineteen articles are divided into five sections: Interfaces, Wettability, and Adhesion; Surface Modification of Polymers; Adhesion Aspects of Bio-Based Materials and Bioadhesion; Adhesives and Their Testing; and Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites. Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of adhesion science, the topics covered include metal–polymer interfaces and ways to improve adhesion, lateral force at liquid–solid interface, particle adhesion in pharmaceutical sciences, wood joints formed without use of adhesives, reinforced polymer composites using different fillers, "green" composites, medium density fiber board surfaces for powder coating, adhesion aspects in dentistry, E. coli interactions in porous media, analysis of adhesive behavior in bonded assemblies, soy proteins as wood adhesives, carbon nanotube-based interphase sensors, and reaction of multiwalled carbon nanotubes with gaseous atoms.

This book is based on the 13 review articles written by subject experts and published in 2014 in the Journal Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives. The rationale for publication of this book is that currently the RAA has limited circulation, so this book provides broad exposure and dissemination of the concise, critical, illuminating, and thought-provoking review articles. The subjects of the reviews fall into 4 general areas: 1. Polymer surface modification 2. Biomedical, pharmaceutical and dental fields 3. Adhesives and adhesive joints 4. General Adhesion Aspects The topics covered include: Adhesion of condensed bodies at microscale; imparting adhesion property to silicone material; functionally graded adhesively bonded joints; synthetic adhesives for wood panels; adhesion theories in wood adhesive bonding; adhesion and surface issues in biocomposites and bionanocomposites; adhesion phenomena in pharmaceutical products and applications of AFM; cyanoacrylate adhesives in surgical applications; ways to generate monosort functionalized polyolefin surfaces; nano-enhanced adhesives; bonding dissimilar materials in dentistry; flame treatment of polymeric materials—relevance to adhesion; and mucoadhesive polymers for enhancing retention of ocular drug delivery.

The result of decades of research by a pioneer in the field, this is the first book to deal exclusively with achieving high-performance metal-polymer composites by chemical bonding. Covering both the academic and practical aspects, the author focuses on the chemistry of interfaces between metals and polymers with a particular emphasis on the chemical bonding between the different materials. He elucidates the various approaches to obtaining a stable interface, including, but not limited to, thermodynamically driven redox reactions, bond protection to prevent hydrolysis, the introduction of barrier layers, and stabilization by spacer molecules. Throughout, chemical bonding is promoted as a simple and economically viable alternative to adhesion based on reversible weak physical interaction. Consequently, the text equips readers with the practical tools necessary for designing high-strength metal-polymer composites with such desired properties as resilience, flexibility, rigidity or degradation resistance.

Adhesively-bonded joints provide many advantages over conventional mechanical fasteners and are increasingly receiving attention as an alternative to mechanical joints in engineering applications. The traditional fasteners usually result in the cutting of fibers and hence the introduction of stress concentrations, both of which reduce structural integrity. By contrast, bonded joints are more continuous and have potential advantages of strength-to-weight ratio, design flexibility, and ease of fabrication. This book provides an overview of available analytical methods as well as numerical methods.

Sealing is an age-old problem that dates back to our earliest attempts to create a more comfortable living environment. Prehistoric people used natural sealants such as earth, loam, grass, and reeds to protect the interior of their homes against the weather. Today’s applications extend to a myriad of uses. The Handbook of Sealant Technology provides an in-depth examination of sealants, reviewing their historical developments and fundamentals, adhesion theories and properties, and today’s wide range of applications. Featuring contributions from international academic and industry experts, this comprehensive, illustrated reference explores: The history of sealants from the Stone Age to the present The testing and durability of sealants and sealed joints The use of organofunctional silanes in sealant technology Hot melt and intumescent sealants Urethane waterproofing membrane systems Foam back-up materials Sealants for use in construction, bridge expansion joints, and automotive electronics Fibrin sealants for biomedical applications As technology continues to develop, the potential for sealant use grows exponentially. This valuable reference guide provides a window on the past and offers insight into the extent of future possibilities in a host of industries.
