The surface of carbon fibre reinforced plastics is usually cleaned prior to adhesive bonding. If epoxy resins are the matrix materials, grinding is the most often used procedure. Laser treatment seems to be a more reproducible alternative. In this paper the influence of eximer laser radiation...
As I drove back the heavens opened wide to reveal a chorus and trumpets making Handel-like noises (de Bruyne, N.A. ‘My Life’, Midsummer Books, 1996). These were Norman de Bruyne's feelings when he returned from the de Havilland works in Hatfield, on 9th April 1936, with a cheque for £1000...
The effect of the surrounding liquid on the strength of the polymer/fibre interface was studied. For this purpose, the shear adhesive strength, τ, between an epoxy composition EDT-10 (based on diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A) and a steel wire of diameter 150 μm was tested by the pull-out...
Liquid polysulfide polymers can be cured by a wide variety of compounds and through a number of reaction paths. The most commonly used system is the oxidation of the thiol terminal groups in the presence of metal peroxides. Addition and substitution reactions are also possible with such diverse...
The importance of some relative surface characteristics which determines the strength of adhesive joints: specific surface of substrate α, relative contact area β and specific contact area αβ in the adhesion interaction process were emphasised. Existing and potential methods of experimental...
