How About Some Alternatives?

Join the CCAI Central States Chapter for a dinner meeting with two engaging presentations on alternatives to your manufacturing process.


  • More uniform stress distribution over the entire bond face: This has a very positive effect on the static and dynamic strength achieved. Where welding and riveting result in localized stress peaks, adhesive bonding achieves uniform distribution and absorption of stress loads.
  • No change in surface and texture of the joined materials: Welding temperatures may change the texture and, therefore, the mechanical properties of materials. In addition, welding, riveting and fastening all affect the visual appearance of the parts.
  • Weight saving: Adhesives are particularly popular for light-weight constructions, where thin-walled parts (wall thickness < 0.5 mm) must be joined.
  • Sealed joints: Adhesives also act as sealants, preventing loss of pressure or liquids, blocking the penetration of condensation water and protecting against corrosion.
  • Joining dissimilar materials and reducing the risk of corrosion: The adhesive forms an insulating film to prevent contact corrosion when different types of metals are joined. It also acts as electrical and thermal insulator.

  • The operational, environmental and performance benefits of powder coating led its rapid advancement, and current position as an industrial coating. For decades, a handful of coaters, together with their suppliers, sought to leverage those benefits to establish new ground for powder -- beyond metal substrates. For too long, these “bleeding edge” efforts, hindered by the technical limitations of the past, delivered only modest results. Things have changed, a lot. Today, with the culmination of recent advances in material, application and curing technologies, a few leading edge companies are finally making significant strides to advance powder coating to alternative substrates. In this presentation, Chris Reding of IFS Coatings will review the technologies that have made it possible.

Presenter: Chris Reding, Director of Alternative Substrates, IFS Coatings, Inc.
