5.3 Adhesive joints

The essential feature of adhesive joining is that two parts are joined by placing a liquid between them, which then solidifies. The strength of the joint depends both on the strength of bond between the parts and the adhesive layer, and the strength of the adhesive layer itself. In Brazing and soldering. the layer is put in as a hot liquid which solidifies on cooling to room temperature as shown in Figure 48.
