Adhesive Bonding: Adhesives, Applications and Processes
Written by specialists in various disciplines from both academia and industry, this handbook is the very first to provide such comprehensive knowledge in a compact and well-structured form. Alongside such traditional fields as the properties, chemistry and characteristic behavior of adhesives and adhesive joints, it also treats in detail current practical questions and the manifold applications for adhesives.

Paul Ludwig Geiß studied mechanical engineering at the TU Kaiserslautern, where he earned his doctorate in 1998 under Professor Brockmann. After a spell in industry, in 2003 he accepted the post of junior professor in joining technology at the TU Kaiserslautern, taking over the workgroup for materials and surface technology from 2004 onwards. Dr. Geiß is head of the norm committee "Testing of construction adhesives, adhesive joining and sandwiching" at the DIN and a member of the scientific advisory board to the international meeting "Swiss Bonding".
Jürgen Klingen studied chemistry at Duisburg University, majoring in instrumental chemical analysis. He gained his doctorate in polymer interlacing under Professor Robert Gillard at the University of Wales. He has been working at 3M Deutschland GmbH in Neuss for 20 years, since 1996 as head of the R&D department for adhesives, new materials and polymer processes. Dr. Klingen is the owner of several patents in the field of adhesives chemistry.
Bernhard Schröder earned his doctorate following his chemistry degree in Münster in 1978. After many years working in industry, he switched to the Scientific and Medical Institute of Tübingen University in 1986, where he heads the department of surface technology responsible for R&D projects, in particular surface finishing processes for medical products with function layers and adhesive processes in medical technology. Dr. Schröder has several patents and publications in adhesive and medical technology to his name.
From the evaluations of the project idea:
"I am convinced that, due to his decades of experience, Professor Brockmann is one of the few people to have gained an excellent overview of the entire developments, and will produce a book that should be widely welcomed within the professional community." Dr. Gierenz, Solingen
"There is hardly any literature on adhesive technology that is practice-oriented."
"All relevant topics and aspects are considered."
"The author's renown (...) very high!"
Industrial Association of Adhesives
"Adhesive technology is a cross-sectional technology and corresponds to the latest developments in materials science and is thus vital for innovations. It is considered a universal joining technology, meaning that it influences all technical fields."
"Brockmann, the author, enjoys great renown, especially due to his comprehensive experience in this field."
"In the new book, 'Adhesive Technology', published by Wiley-VCH, Brockmann et al. report on modern processes and technologies."
Welt der Farben
"The price is acceptable considering the scope and finish of this book. It can thus be recommended to all those interested in adhesive technology."
Materials and Corrosion
"... shows in a compact and easily comprehensible manner what adhesive technology is capable of today and in future in the various areas of application. ... It describes among other things practical questions ... Further, the reader gains insights into nature's sophisticated adhesive technologies and many everyday adhesive solutions. ...learns in this book that this technology often treated with skepticism is a very powerful joining technology when correctly developed and applied, while gaining help in successfully dealing with adhesive tasks."
adhäsion - kleben & dichten (the expert journal for industrial adhesive and sealing technology)
"The editors and co-authors have succeeded in interpreting the expert arguments in a comprehensible way, such that even newcomers can use them in their tasks. (...) This is why 'Adhesive Technology' is an important companion for engineers and chemists working in adhesive joining technology, so as to be able to professionally tackle everyday tasks in practice. Not only are the many bases of adhesives discussed, but also quality assurance, and testing methods for adhesive joints - something the practitioner will particularly appreciate..."
"...a highly gratifying and extremely successful work...Very rarely can a book be recommended so whole-heartedly."
