Abstract:

An investigation was undertaken to determine the feasibility of using adhesion promoters to improve the interfacial bond between titanium and structural adhesives. The dry and wet strengths of titaniumepoxytitanium lap-shear joints were determined, utilizing gamma-aminopropyltriethoxysilane as the adhesion promoter. The lap-shear joints using gamma-aminopropyltriethoxysilane were found to be approximately 25 stronger dry and more than 50 stronger after water exposure than joints prepared with standard surface treatments.
