1. General: "MIL-HDBK-691B Department of Defense - Military Standardization Handbook - Adhesive Bonding" is a tremendously valuable resource for adhesive information. It has over 400 pages and was the US Department of Defense's standard information source for adhesives until 2013. Although no longer an active source for the DoD, it contains fundamental information that will remain valid, although for the very latest in adhesive technology, you'll have to look elsewhere.
