Adhesive Bonding of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene
Joining behavior of long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene (LFT) by three types of adhesive was investigated. Single-lap shear testing was used to evaluate the performance of adhesively bonded structures. The two-part acrylic adhesive DP8005 was determined to be the best among the three adhesive candidates, which was attributed to its low surface energy. The stress distribution in the adhesive layer of the single lap joint was modeled by static elastic analysis using ANSYS software. The shear and peel stresses peaked at the edges of the adhesive layer.
