Description

The use of adhesively-bonded structures is prevalent throughout the Navy since watertight rubber-to-metal bonds are required on many undersea systems including sonar transducers and electrical cables. In addition, adhesive bonds are used to transfer loads between rubber and metal adherends for limited structural applications. However, in each case the principal function of the adhesive bond is to provide watertight integrity for the bonded components in the hostile ocean environment where corrosion is of major concern.
