BETHESDA, Md. (Oct. 9) — The Adhesive and Sealant Council and SpecialChem have teamed up to create an Internet platform dedicated to providing educational resources and training in adhesives and sealants for material and product engineers, designers, architects and others. The Web site, www.omnexus4adhesives.com, serves those who seek basic information about adhesives and sealants.
The Web site features reference materials focusing on the basics of adhesive bonding and provides updates on adhesive/sealant solutions, articles organized by market and application focus, global regulations and case studies.
On the same Web platform will be a series of e-training classes taught by industry experts to complement the resources. The courses feature live instruction and interactive question-and-answer sessions.
"Our intent is to expand awareness of the critically important role adhesives and sealants play in the design-engineering community," ASC President Lawrence Sloan said. "Through online reference materials and training courses, we want to raise the comfort level of designers and engineers and encourage them to consider adhesives and sealants as the preferred bonding solution over mechanical fasteners in their next project."
