Since the start in 2006 Makiba became the most relevant independend Dutch center of knowledge in industrial applications of adhesive bonding techniques. Once started to support the petro-chemical industry in adhesive bonding projects; nowadays Makiba operates a well equiped laboratory in destructive testing & accelerated aging. Furthermore, the laboratory is approved for European certified trainingcourses in adhesive bonding technology.

The activities are divided in four groups:

  • Research                  - Mechanical properties of adhesive bonded joints, accelerated aging
  • QA/QC                      - Introduction of QA-systems of adhesive bonding processes in production environment and support to comply with DIN 2304 or to achieve DIN 6701 certification
  • Knowledge transfer - European (EWF) certified trainingcourses in industrial application of adhesive bonding techniques, in close cooperation with Fraunhofer IFAM
  • Webshop                  - Sales of special materials to facilitate QA-procedures in adhesive bonding processes
