The advantages of adhesives and sealants in shipbuilding

In the yacht and shipbuilding industry, fastening and sealing systems form an important part of the construction process. An adhesive bond or seal offers a number of significant advantages over welded, riveted or screwed attachments:

  • greater design freedom
  • more even stress distribution
  • visually more attractive
  • better attenuation of noise and vibrations
  • fewer corrosion problems
