The DIN 2304-1, which defines the requirements for a quality-compliant execution of constructive, i.e. load-transmitting adhesive joints along the bonding process chain, from development through production to repair, has been revised and is available for inspection and comment in the DIN Design Portal until 13.11.2019.
During the revision, the experience gained since the first publication in April 2016 in the daily work with this standard was taken into account and implemented. In addition to improving the structure, specifying formulations, deleting redundancies and updating the normative references, the criteria for classifying bonds in one of the four safety classes were changed. The risk of financial loss no longer has to be taken into account.
After several years of cooperation in DIN standardization committees, we have decided to support national and international standardization work by becoming a company member. Since July 1st, 2019, we are member of DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V. (German Institute for Standardization).

Under the motto “Get off to a successful start with adhesive projects”, this adhesive technology forum organized by ISGATEC AKADEMIE offers the opportunity to
exchange ideas with experts about today’s and tomorrow’s adhesive projects and to find out the latest about
- about the efficient implementation of bonding projects – from design to production – including using the DIN 2304 standard
- the practice-oriented qualification of the responsible bonding personnel
- the right choice of adhesives and perspectives of different bonding technologies
- quality assurance and possibilities for non-destructive testing
- practical experience, e.g. in the automotive industry, electronics and power engineering.
I am particularly pleased to contribute a paper with the title
Carry out adhesive projects correctly or what is still often done wrong
In my paper presentation I will show that a successful implementation of an adhesive project does not only mean to find out what the “right” of the almost infinite number of adhesives offered by the different manufacturers – for Europe alone this is estimated at about 30.000 – 35.000 – is. The entire process, from component design to possible reworking, must be considered also from a commercial point of view. Various traps lurk here, into which not so experienced but sometimes also “old hands” like to step. In the best case this means “only” additional stress, but also project delays, additional costs up to bond defects occurring after series start can be the consequences.

I look forward to welcoming you personally to Mannheim in May.
The new edition 2019 of the English language Adhesives Technology Compendium again offers important information about the German, Austrian, Swiss and Dutch adhesive industry as well as about the service portfolio of the adhesive associations in these countries.
The compendium now contains a total of 165 company profiles and thus offers a comprehensive overview of the supply and service spectrum of the adhesives industry and its system partners, adhesive technology consultants and scientific institutions. The compendium informs about the activities of the Industrieverband Klebstoffe e. V. (German Adhesives Industry Association). (IVK) and useful overviews – e.g. on adhesive-relevant European legislation and regulations, European standards and test methods as well as statistical overviews.
The compendium was published by the German Adhesives Industry Association (Industrieverband Klebstoffe e. V.). (IVK) in cooperation with the editorial staff of the trade journal “adhesion”.

With more than thirty years of experience in adhesive technology in the industrial environment, I support users and manufacturers of adhesives and other people interested in adhesive bonding in their projects.
