Ensure reliability of your bonded assemblies


You need to characterise the mechanical strength of your assemblies:

  • in order to validate the choice of your adhesive and the related manufacturing process, and to check the product's compliance with the specifications
  • to optimize or secure pour production cycles


A comprehensive set of means and tests to qualify your assemblies and your production process:

  • assistance in the definition of tests to be performed according to the expected functions
  • standardised or specific tests: mechanical or physical-chemical tests, Arcan or "pure" shear tests, fatigue and ageing tests
  • determination of the adhesive behaviour laws
  • calculations/tests correlations
  • acknoledged expertise in the field of bonded assemblies
  • Cetim's multi-skilled experts in bonding, mechanical fatigue and calculation make you benefit from their experience if the industrial field to help you innovate and make your product reliable
