DIN 2304 Part 1 "Adhesives Bonding Technology - Quality Requirements for Adhesives Bonding Processes", now available in English

In March 2016, an IVK expert group comprising adhesives manufacturers, adhesive users and scientists released the new DIN 2304 standard enriching the industry with another important tool for assuring the quality of adhesive bonding processes.

This new DIN standard specifies the requirements for an effective & quality-assured manufacturing process for structural/load-bearing adhesively bonded joints to meet well-defined safety classes. Due to this new standard, workforce qualification will from now on be a mandatory element and therefore an integral part of controlled bonding processes. Companies which work according to this standard do so in the knowledge that they are operating according to the adhesive bonding state-of-the-art.

In just a few months, after the standard was published, this German initiative gained a European-wide recognition and acceptance within the industry, and it was therefore translated into English.

The English version of DIN 2304 Part1 „Adhesives Bonding Technology – Quality Requirements for Adhesives Bonding Processes“ can be obtained from DIN/Beuth-Verlag: http://www.beuth.de/en/standard/din-2304-1/245690516http://www.beuth.de/en/standard/din-2304-1/245690516

New Image Film released

On the occasion of its 70th anniversary in June 2016, IVK has released the new image film “The fascinating World of Adhesives”.

This 5-minute image-clip explains the basic principles of adhesive chemistry, why adhesives have become indispensable to modern manufacturing processes, and how and why innovative adhesive systems have quietly revolutionized our world. There is hardly any household, craft or industry which does not rely on the use of modern and innovative adhesives, allowing creating completely new degrees of freedom in engineering and design.

It goes without saying that this image film is completely neutral; it does neither contain any kind of advertisement nor product-placements.

“The fascinating World of Adhesives” is available in English and German and it can be watched online, or can be downloaded free of charge on/from IVK’s homepage: www.klebstoffe.com. Additionally, the image film can be found on IVK’s YouTube channel Klebstoffe.

There is less and less correlation between the price of crude oil and the price of adhesives

Crude oil prices have been falling for two years, and the dollar-per-barrel rate is currently 35 percent below last year’s level. However, the price of crude oil no longer bears a direct relation to that of the end products. One reason for this is the multitude of processing steps along the value chain that determine the end price to a far greater extent than the crude oil price does.

Why the adhesives industry cannot pass on the cuts in oil prices to its customers is best explained by an IVK press release which has been published recently.

Pharaoh Tutankhamun's Death Mask Repaired

Tutankhamun's beard - saved, not shaved

Great agitation at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. During cleaning work, the world famous mask of pharaoh Tutankhamun was damaged the beard fell off. Finally, this mishap could now be repaired thanks to German adhesive know-how. The world famous artefact withstood more than 3,000 years undamaged until employees of the museum accidentally tore off the royal chin beard of the golden death mask and then tried to provisionally reattach it using a totally inappropriate synthetic resin, resulting in ugly, yellowish traces on the pharaoh' s face.

In order to repair the mishap, the restoration team lead by Christian Eckmann from the Roman Germanic Central Museum in Mainz drew on the expertise and support of German adhesives experts. First, the synthetic resin was removed in a very complex special process leaving no residues. Then, researchers successfully developed a completely new adhesive. In order to be able to repair the beard in a professional manner this newly developed adhesive had to be capable to reliably adhere to pure gold, and at the same time the adhesive bond had to be reversible. Now, the mask is again on display in the Egyptian Museum thanks to adhesive technology "Made in Germany“.
