ABSTRACT
This paper is primarily devoted to one of adhesive curing process parameters – pressure applied during curing, as well as the type of adhesive. The aim of this work is to determine the influence of pressure applied during curing process of aluminium alloy sheet adhesive joints on the strength of adhesive joints formed with two epoxy adhesives: Loctite 9484 and Loctite 9466. Three types of aluminium alloy sheets were tested, namely AW 2024, AW 2017A and AW 1050, applied in many branches of engineering. During formation of adhesive joints, other conditions remained unchanged, and surface preparation operations included mechanical processing and degreasing.
