The Cova In Cova Scientific


Here at Cova Scientific we’re dedicated to making the specialized adhesive and sealant research process easier by providing web based resources and consulting services to directly connect corporate engineers with polymer formulators. But why cova? What exactly inspired this portion of the full name Cova Scientific?

Cova Is Short For Covalent

Some of you might have been able to guess this right off the bat, but the Cova in Cova Scientific is short of covalent.

A covalent bond is a type of chemical bond that involves the sharing of electrons between two atoms. This sharing of electrons results an intermolecular attraction that can only be described as a "bond." Although the definition only applies to an interaction between two atoms, a single atom may partake in several covalent bonds, resulting in covalent structures or molecules.

All molecules and therefore polymer adhesives are held together by covalent bonds. However, most important to Cova Scientific are the following types of adhesives, sealants and polymer properties, all of which revolve around covalently bonded materials.
