ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was a comparative analysis of static shear strength of single-lap adhesive joints of 316L steel adherends, measured prior to and after mechanical treatment with a P320 grit coated abrasive tool. The study was of comparative nature and focused on adhesive joints subjected to thermal cycling. The tests were carried out on joints bonded with Epidian 5 and Epidian 6 epoxy adhesives hardened with Z1 and PAC curing agents. The static shear strength tests results of single-lap adhesive joints were analysed with regard to different surface treatment variants. The scope of tests covered a relatively short fatigue cycle, i.e. 200 cycles in the range of temperatures between -40oC and +60oC. This paper includes the surface free energy and selected surface roughness parameters of substrates and images showing the surface of adherends before and after mechanical treatment with P320 grit coated abrasive tool.
