Description

An adhesive bond can be used to join metal to metal, metal to composite, composite to composite, metal to honeycomb, composite to foam, etc., to form a new structure. These adhesively bonded joints are being utilized in airframes to meet the general industry requirements of increased performance and decreased weight. These bonds are replacing rivets and other mechanical fasteners in load bearing situations and failure of the bond can therefore lead to failure of the component and possibly an entire structural system.
