Industrial Bonding

Industrial brake bonding is essentially the same as shoe bonding but for specialty and heavy-duty machinery. A brake adhesive is applied to the friction material and put under pressure in a special jig, and then heated in an oven for a fixed amount of time. The precise amount of pressure combined with the high temperature creates a vulcanizing bond, which is very strong and far superior to a cold bond (two part epoxy bond) or riveting.
