Robert--Very informational. Excellent post. Am I correct in saying the Tg temperature is somewhat like the "triple point" for other materials? Would this be a decent analogy? Also, I'm assuming all adhesives have a Tg temperature. In looking at the adhesives I use and see used on a daily basis, we are very concerned that we apply adhesive to a part and adhere that part to a substrate before that adhesives "skins over". The only way for us to insure compliance with our customers "pull test" requirements.
