Sign & Digital online’s first session is scheduled

Sign & Digital UK (SDUK) has announced the details of the first event in the Sign & Digital online series. Hosted on Hopin (the online events platform), it will take place on 14th July, 9.30am – 10.30am and comprise a masterclass on adhesives and include useful tips on how to avoid costly sign failures.

Beginning with a welcome and networking session, Kevin Henry, Eurobond’s Technical Manager will go on to explore how signmakers can avoid application and adhesive failures in signs by understanding the chemistry behind adhesive and material choices. The event will be interactive, and viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss methods.

Kevin will advise how to select the right type of adhesive chemistry, recommend the best adhesive choices for use on rigid and flexible materials and discuss the impact of environmental factors on adhesive choice. He will also point out why it is necessary to understand the loads or forces on the bond line, suggest how to achieve the best surface preparation and how to avoid contamination issues. Finally, he will cover all of the adhesives commonly used in the sign industry and comment on the differences between temporary versus permanent installation with particularly with regard to the installation of sneeze guards and COVID-19 signage. The session will also include demonstrations of the best-practice use of adhesives and adhesive tapes.
