An agglomerate is an accumulation of weakly bound particles, of which the resulting surface is similar to the sum of the surfaces of the individual components. Agglomerates are called secondary particles, while the source particles that make up the agglomerate are called primary particles. The secondary particles are held together by weak forces, such as Van der Waals forces or simple physical clamping.
