Is it for me?
Designers and manufacturing staff either currently using or planning to use adhesives. The course is particularly relevant to those wishing to understand a technology that is being used more frequently to create new products. The course can either be used as foundation upon which to base good practice or as a useful refresher for those already using the technology.
