The first major use of adhesives comes under the heading of “converting”, which includes the generation of various types of packaging and labeling. The second major use of adhesives is in the construction industry and includes many of the applications discussed earlier. The adhesive industry is considered a “fragmented” industry. There are a large number of adhesive companies with fewer than 50 employees. Only a few adhesive companies have more than 1000 employees. However, the industry saw a substantial consolidation through the 1980s and the 1990s with the emergence of several large companies that grew through the acquisition of smaller ones.

It is therefore appropriate to discuss the basic theory of the bending of beams here. Much of the discussion in this section is taken from The Strength of Materials by Timoshenko. The discussion of the bending of beams begins with Newton’s Laws of Motion as they are applied to objects in equilibrium. Simply stated, an object that is in equilibrium is static. The sum of the forces acting on that body must add to zero and the sum of the torques (or moments) acting on that body must sum to zero. 43) where Fext are the vector forces acting on the body externally and Mext are the torques or moments acting on the body externally.

3) where  is the tensile stress,  is the engineering tensile strain and E is a constant. This relationship should be familiar. It is simply a restatement of Hooke’s Law for Springs, that the stress and the strain are proportional. The force applied to a spring and the resultant elongation are directly proportional. The proportionality constant is called the spring constant. A spring is usually used as a model for materials that behave according to this equation. Materials that obey Hooke’s law are known as linear elastic materials.
