Cost

Cost is not usually used as a method of classification for adhesives. However, it is an important factor in the selection of an adhesive for a particular application, and therefore an indirect method of classification. When the cost associated with the use of an adhesive is estimated, it must be considered not only the price of the adhesive itself but also all the costs associated with implementation, namely, the cost of hand labour and equipment, the curing time of the adhesive, the losses resulting from application errors, the elimination of waste and the costs related to quality control.
