Title and Abstract


Investigation of the effect of temperature on the adhesiveness of glue



Objective:
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.

Methods:
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.

Results:
Our findings show that the higher the temperature of the glue when applied, the more its adhesive strength is.

Conclusion:

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.
