Abstract

Effects of surface modifications on the adhesive joint of carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) were investigated. CFRP surfaces were treated with traditional methods, such as acetone cleaning, sanding, grit blasting and peel ply. As a novel type of surface modification, stainless steel 316 wire mesh was co-cured on the CFRP laminate during the manufacturing stage. The surface topography of CFRP adherends was analysed through microscopic imaging. Surface roughness values were measured using a surface roughness tester. Contact angle measurements of probe liquids were performed to calculate surface energy. All adherends were bonded with a low viscosity epoxy adhesive. The single lap shear tests were used to measure the bonding strength of the CFRP joints. The experimental results showed that the highest average shear strength (24.2 MPa) was achieved for metal mesh modified joints. This amounted to a 101.7% increase compared with acetone-cleaned specimens. There was no statistically significant difference in shear strength among joints subjected to traditional surface treatments. Fracture surface images were analysed and correlation between surface treatment and lap shear strength was critically discussed.
