REFLECTOR: High Tech Flanged Parts and New Adhesives

Very interesting and informative discussion in your post yesterday re Kevlar and Carbon Fiber. 
However, could you elaborate on the following statement:
"-new Velocity kits have many high tech flanged parts.  These are bonded
in with adhesive which is much stronger than laminating resin.  Tape
glassing over the outside of these flanges after bonding is a waste.  If
you can reach the inside a very narrow tape will increase the strength a
little but in most cases is not needed considering the bond strength of
these adhesives."
Which flanges are you referring to - bulkheads? battery box, center console? 
And which adhesives - West Systems, Velocipoxy, Resin Research?
