If bonding failures occur, more than 90% of these result from errors committed during the adhesive bonding process and not from the substandard quality of the adhesive itself. DIN 2304 is a new German standardisation project on quality requirements for adhesive bonding processes. Currently this standard is restricted to the production of structural/load-bearing adhesive bonds in defined safety areas, although it could be applied to areas other than structural bonding in the future. It could also impact and extend to businesses and industries at European and global levels. Afera is monitoring the impact of this standard on adhesive tape users.
