To measure adhesion bond
strength to the steel substrate, ASTM D3654 for measuring the ability of a pressure sensitive tape to adhere to a standard steel panel under constant stress was used, but instead of pressure sensitive tape, the composite was molded to the panel.
This article discusses the basic science--contact angles, surface wetting, and chemical activation--behind achieving strong adhesion bond
Once a good primary adhesion bond
is established, the accelerated environmental testing will evaluate the adhesive's performance.
inch; the rubber tears before the adhesion bond
They are one of the hardest coatings and form a hard, smooth surface that will resist chipping, peeling or cracking, and form one of the strongest surface adhesion bonds
