Bonding

 

with regard to textile materials, the joining and fastening of materials with threads and glue or under pressure after glazing of the joining surface of one of the materials. Most often, two fabrics (synthetic, wool, metallized, or cotton fabrics) are glued together, or one surface of polyurethane foam is glazed and joined under pressure with a fabric or knitted material. Bonding gives textile materials new properties, such as water or light impermeability or crease resistance. Bonded materials are used to make men’s, women’s, and children’s overcoats, suits, and special-purpose clothing.

bonding

[′bän·diŋ]
(chemistry)
The joining together of atoms to form molecules or crystalline salts.
(electricity)
The use of low-resistance material to connect electrically a chassis, metal shield cans, cable shielding braid, and other supposedly equipotential points to eliminate undesirable electrical interaction resulting from high-impedance paths between them.
(engineering)
The fastening together of two components of a device by means of adhesives, as in anchoring the copper foil of printed wiring to an insulating baseboard.
(psychology)
The formation of an emotional attachment between two people whose identities are significantly affected by their mutual interactions.
(textiles)
The joining of two fabrics, usually a face fabric and a lining fabric.

Bonding

The act of connecting the various structural metal parts of a metal enclosure or vehicle (as in an aircraft or automobile) so that these parts form a continuous electrical unit. Bonding serves to minimize or eliminate interference, such as that caused by ignition systems. It also prevents buildup of static electricity on one part of the structure, which can, by subsequent discharge to other parts, cause static interference. Bonding is achieved by bolting the parts together in such a way as to achieve good electrical contact or by connecting them with heavy copper cables or straps.

Bonding also refers to the fastening together of two pieces by means of adhesives, as in anchoring the copper foil of printed wiring to an insulating baseboard. See Adhesive

bonding

1. The connecting together of all the electrical grounds in a system to eliminate differences in ground potential between them.
2. The interconnecting of cable sheaths and sheaths of adjacent conductors so there is no potential difference between the metal parts which are grounded.
3. The connecting of a gas pipe system to an acceptable grounding electrode as specified by the National Electrical Code or other applicable code.

bonding

The act of connecting all metal parts of the aircraft to secure good electrical continuity and so avoid the undesirable effects of static electricity.

bonding

Tying two or more devices together to function as one. See channel bonding, G.bond and ISDN.

Results of our study showed that the mean SBS for Group A (brackets bonded with flowable composite using intermediate bonding resin on etched enamel) and Group B (brackets bonded with flowable composite without using intermediate bonding resin on etched enamel) were 12.33 MPa and 11.70 MPa respectively and this result was not statistically significant.
The SBS showed by both groups is well above the SBS required for clinically acceptable bonding.
This result is in accordance with Agha and Tecco et al16, Agha19 in his study compared traditional orthodontic composite with two flowable composites, one used with intermediate bonding resin and one without intermediate bonding resin.
Our result was not in agreement with Uysal and colleagues which in their study while comparing traditional orthodontic composite with flowable composite (with and without intermediate bonding resin) showed that fllowable composites with and without intermedate bonding resin (7.75 MPa, 8.53 MPa vs 6.60 MPa, two brands of flowable composite with intermediate layer were used) displayed significantly lower SBS than traditional orthodontic composite.20 They did not recommend use of flowable composite for routine orthodontic bracket bonding.
