The authors have investigated the effect of the surface condition of the adherends (aluminum, deep-drawing sheet steel) on the adhesive structure and hence on the strength of adhesive-bonded joints in the non-aged and aged states, as illustrated by two synthetic-rubber based adhesives. Also varied was the curing temperature for the adhesive (160, 190, 220°C). The strength of the adhesive-bonded joints in the aluminum was found to be approximately comparable to that of the joints in the steel. It was affected to only a minor degree by the surface pretreatment. The adhesives themselves were notable for their capacity for absorbing grease. For figures and references see pp. 121/125.
