Bonded metal joints, when in use, are subject to numerous effects which can alter or impair the mechanical structural properties of the adhesive. Among the most important of these effects is, apart from the mechanical, the hygrothermic demand. For this reason the sorption, desorption and swelling behavior of adhesive bond line under hygrothermic strain is determined within the framework of this investigation. It was found out that the tests allowed differentiated statements to be made concerning the structural composition and the properties of the adhesive. The investigation showed that the material behavior and the development of damage around the edges and in the central area of the bonded metal joint differ under hygrothermic strains.
