Factors Affecting the Durability of Titanium/Epoxy Bonds
Good durability of adhesive bonds in hot-wet environments is currently an area of active research [1–3]. Often, the weakest link in a hot, humid environment is the metal/adhesive or the metal/primer/adhesive interphases. These interphase regions need more study to determine the nature of the bonding between the adherend, primer, and adhesive.
