Market study on the application of adhesive bonding in offshore and marine sectors




Qualify project partners Sirris and Damen are performing a market study on the application of adhesive bonding in offshore and marine sectors. The study gives an overview of the current state of the application of adhesive bonding in various sectors, focuses on the challenges and advantages of technology in offshore harsh environments and presents several case studies showing successfully performed industrial projects. You can receive it by helping us!

The project  QUALIFY - 'Enabling Qualification of Hybrid Structures for Lightweight and Safe Maritime Transport' - is a cross-border collaborative project co-funded by the Interreg 2Seas Mers Zeeën Programme. The aim of QUALIFY is to enable the application of adhesively bonded composite-to-metal primary structures in the maritime sector and to gradually bring the advantages of lightweight hybrid structures in other sectors.

Sirris and Damen, as Qualify project partners, are performing a market study on the application of adhesive bonding in offshore and marine sectors. The market study gives an overview of the current state of the application of adhesive bonding in various sectors, and then focuses on the challenges and advantages of adhesive bonding in offshore harsh environments. Several case studies are presented to show successfully performed industrial projects and to motivate adhesive-bonded joints for future potential applications. Moreover, cost analysis of some of the case studies, compared with conventional joining methods, is also presented in this report. 

Within the framework of the Qualify project we have developed a survey to map the market potential for the application of hybrid adhesive bonding in various sectors within the 2 Seas area, i.e., the coastal areas of England, France, Belgium (Flanders), and the Netherlands. The survey helps us to better reflect on the market needs, challenges, roadblocks and potential future developments.

Help us and receive our market study!

You can help us! Please take a moment to complete the following Qualify survey  before 30 April. We know your time is valuable and we want to make it worthwhile: by participating, you will receive the final market study report once it is ready.
