The adherend material is Aluminum with elastic modulus, Poisson's ratio and thermal expansion coefficient of E=70000 MPa, v=0.
The nature of the adhesive deformation in the peel zone is different for different adherends and for different rates.
A decrease in bond strength was explained by displacement of epoxy with water, which preferentially formed hydrogen bonds with the adherend (24), (25).
The creep behavior of bond lines between solid timber adherends with said adhesives, specifically nine PU and five EPI products, along with two phenolic resorcinol-formaldehyde (PRF) adhesives used for reference purposes, were studied.
A room temperature cure phenol resorcinol formaldehyde (PRF) resin (Arclin 4001/ 5830S) and a mastic elastomeric construction adhesive (Liquid Nails) were used to bond decking lumber with three difference surface preparation treatments: (1) weathered-to-weathered (original condition aged in-service as the bond surfaces), (2) weathered-to-planed (single reclaimed surface), and (3) planed-to-planed (both material surfaces reclaimed) bonding of both freshly dressed wood adherends.
The stainless steel plates (Fe/Crl8/Ni9/Ti) with the size of 100 x 25 x 2 mm were used as adherend material in this study.
It is reported that the most common failure modes during the adhesive bonded joints are (i) interfacial failure, (ii) cohesive failure in the adhesive or in the adherend, and (iii) adherend failure (21).
The adherends and the tie-layers used in this study were provided by The Dow Chemical Company, Table 1.
The size of the plastic zone relative to the bond thickness will affect fracture energies either through restriction of plastic zone formation (in very thin bonds, producing low toughness), or through constraint of the plastic zone by the adherend (at optimal thicknesses approximately equal to the plastic zone diameter for maximum toughness), or through a lack of plastic zone constraint (at very thick bonds giving toughnesses similar to the bulk adhesive) (Kinloch 1987, Kinloch and Shaw 1981).
The adherend that is transparent to the laser beam also heats up through thermal conduction, and the adherends weld together.
The procedure for the surface treatment of aluminum adherend included four steps.
The adherend of the copper plate was polished with abrasive paper to remove the oxide layer on the surface and then the shiny surface of the polished adherend was rinsed with toluene and acetone to remove antioxidants.
