Adhesives for Special Adherends

This chapter describes the adhesives used for specific adherend types. Tables are occasionally published listing large numbers of adhesive types recommended for specific adherends; however, such tables can be misleading in supplying information needed to provide strong durable bonds, because the user may not know that some combinations of adhesives and adherends are superior in durability and resistance to others in particular environments.
