Scholarcy highlights

  • Adhesives, those based on epoxy resins, are finding increasing use in structural applications, their utilization at elevated temperature has been limited by their relatively poor thermal and thermo-oxidative stability
  • Significant effort has been directed in recent years toward the development of polymers exhibiting increased thermal resistance
  • A wealth of research conducted over several decades has resulted in a myriad of polymer types exhibiting, in some cases, impressive high-temperature performance, many systems have demonstrated poor processability much emphasis has been placed on developing high-temperature performance while providing processability characteristics that are similar, if not identical, to epoxies
  • The results of various studies undertaken to investigate the effects of elevated temperature on the strength and fatigue resistance of bonded joints are reported
