5. Conclusion

Based on our findings we can conclude that the optimal range for applying glue at is from 75°C to 100°C. When we tested the adhesiveness of glue at these temperatures, they could withstand the most weight. This shows that they are more adhesive as compared to glue at other temperatures.

5.1 Practical Applications

With the results that we have gathered, we can conclude that glue of higher temperatures have greater adhesive strength than glue of lower temperatures. Thus, we can apply this knowledge in the industrial field by constructing more stable products or medical field for teeth filling or new surfaces for chipped or rugged teeth

For industrial purposes, our findings can be used to heat or cool adhesive substances in large amounts so that they can be more effective during construction. For example, this can be applied to cement so that it can dry faster and the construction time will reduce as they do not have to wait days just for the cement or adhesive substances between bricks to dry.

Wet Cement

For example, it can be used in dental clinics for tooth fillings and new surfaces for rugged or chipped teeth. Our findings will help find the most effective range of temperature for such medical treatments.

5.2 Areas for further study

Much of our research has been performed using a single type of glue and material. It is possible that different glues/materials would yield different results so that is also something be considered. Exploring a greater range of temperatures (below 0 and above 100 degrees Celsius) would also be beneficial as we would be able to find a very precise optimal temperature.
