The primary function of adhesives is to assure things together, and they come in many forms, including glue, tape, and sealant, and are used in a variety of everyday applications. Additionally, natural substances can act as adhesives, such as soda and caramel. The stickiness of the adhesive is mainly caused by molecular bonds, and its strength depends on how much stress is needed to pull those bonds apart. The various advantages of using adhesives includes, allows joint substrates with different geometries, sizes and composition in which adhesives can joint glass, plastics, metals, ceramics & others, substantial flexibility in the product design, unique adhesives prepared to conduct electricity or electrical insulator are usually used in the field of electronics, and others. Contact adhesives have the advantage of high initial strength and are based on polymers that display the ability to bond to themselves as dry adhesive films. The surfaces to be bonded must be coated and the adhesive dried. The surfaces that are painted bond immediately on contact, so care needs to be taken in positioning the substrates.
