Current applications for bonding and sealing are expensive and time-consuming. Adhesion of Polymers presents a state-of-the-art method for improving bonds and sealing strength between different materials underwater and in the human body. This time- and cost-efficient technology will allow engineers to create or repair stronger seals in underwater pipes, repair ships at sea, even bond and seal tissues in the body.
