Investigations of bonding approaches and initial bond strength for the intrinsic manufacturing of laminary bonded hybrids made of thermoplastic composite and metal
The intrinsic manufacturing of laminary bonded hybrids on the basis of thermoplastic composites (TPCs) and metal can combine the specific properties of the applied materials in a single process step. The properties of such hybrids depend to a high degree on the bonding quality at the interface of the constituent materials. In this paper, the realisable properties of intrinsically manufactured flat hybrids made of DC04 steel and glass fibre-reinforced poylamide 6 are presented. Two different approaches for bonding (microstructuring and adhesive film) are investigated and compared, showing promising results for the future development of intrinsic hybrids.
