This section on science is dedicated to provide a broader understanding of how adhesives and sealants are made, the handling precautions one should take and links to further information.
History: The use of adhesives and sealants goes back to thousands of years ago but nature was there first. Read the historical section and discover how you can make your own adhesives just like the Neanderthals.
Safety: Adhesives and sealants are safe to use when following instructions. The section on health, safety and the environment will give you an understanding why minimal precautions are necessary to avoid possible difficulties.
Science & Technology: Have you wondered why some materials stick and why some don't? This section is slightly more technical but tries to explain in layman language how adhesives and sealants work.
Glossary: The technically challenged will find in this section the meaning of some of the more specialized terms use.
