The article discusses methods for curing structural adhesives to achieve their full performance. Curing builds the internal strength of the adhesive and increases temperature and environmental resistance. Epoxies and urethanes are cured by mixing two reactants while free radicals or ions are added to acrylic adhesives to cure them.
