Using Induction Heating for Bonding

Dec 11, 2018 5:00:53 PM / by Brett Daly posted in bonding, Applications Lab, Applications

 

Bonding involves connecting metal or materials containing metal to materials such as plastic, rubber or thermoplastic materials without using a bonding adhesive. Bonding with induction entails accelerating the polymerization of an adhesive by heating the metal parts to be joined. The required temperature range is generally from 150 ºC to 220 °C. Accurate heat control is critical to successfully bonding with induction heating.
