Abstract:

Long-term durability of epoxy bonds to alloys of uranium, nickel-plated uranium, thorium, tungsten, tantalum, tantalum, tungsten, and aluminum has been evaluated. Significant strengths remain after ten years of aging however, there is some evidence of bond deterioration with uranium alloys and thorium stored in ambient laboratory air.
