How to use "Adhesive friction" in context?

Adhesive friction is the tendency of two surfaces to resist separation when moved by an external force. The bonding between the two surfaces creates a force that opposes the movement. This force is due to the adhesive properties of the surfaces. Adhesive friction is most significant in materials that are not easily deformed, such as glass and metal.
