Object To determine the peel strengths of FMS-0057 and FMS-0016 adhesives, bonded to clad and unclad 2020T-6 aluminum alloy, and to compare them with the peel strengths of the same adhesives bonded to clad 2024T-86 aluminum alloy. When bonded and tested as outlined in this report, the peel strength of FMS-0016 adhesive was about four times greater than that of FMS-0057 adhesive. There was no significant difference between the peel strengths of individual specimens of 2020T-6 clad, 2020T-6 unclad and 2024T-86 clad aluminum alloys when bonded with FMS-0057 adhesive, or with FMS-0016 adhesive.
