Thermal welding techniques; Early research on welding polymers – introduction to tack; Recent research on the theory of welding thermoplastics; Measurements of polymer self diffusion; Characterisation of thermal welds in polymers; Overview of current knowledge.
This report reviews the literature in the field of thermal welding and goes on to identify the theories for the mechanism of thermal welding of thermoplastics and to relate these, where possible, to current welding techniques and joint strength development.
Researchers in metallurgy and materials science, advanced materials, and welding technologies
