Investigation of the effect of temperature on the adhesiveness of glue
The goal of this project is to investigate the effect of temperature on the adhesiveness of glue. Adhesiveness refers to the strength of an adhesive.
Beakers containing 15ml of UHU glue were each heated or cooled to the desired temperatures ( 0°C, 25°C, 50°C, 75°C and 100°C). Thereafter, they were immediately applied to two surfaces of glue and given 5 minutes to dry before they were tested on the amount of weights they could hold before saging.
Our findings show that the higher the temperature of the glue when applied, the more its adhesive strength is.
Our results show that it is more effective to apply glue at a higher temperature as it shows that at higher temperatures, the adhesiveness of the glue increases.
