Some composite structures require bonding as they consist of more than one part or it is simply the most efficient way to manufacture the part.
To aid the bonding process and ensure quality and consistency jigs will be used. These will be designed as individual fixtures or where possible taken from an existing tool.
A bonding manual specific to the part is used to ensure the correct assembly sequence and type of adhesive is applied.
Particular care is taken to prepare the bonding surfaces so that excellent adhesion is achieved.
Appropriate adhesives are applied, which are compatible with epoxy resin systems and surfaces.
