    Joining Hybrid Components of CFRP and Aluminum

    Without Contact Corrosion

    For trendsetting lightweight construction concepts, connections consisting of lightweight metals and fibre composites represent ideal material combinations. However, as both materials show different electrochemical potentials, there is the danger of contact corrosion occurring in a hybrid composite. Within the framework of a DFG research project, Fraunhofer IFAM, in cooperation with the Faserinstitut Bremen e.V., has developed a new series-capable joining technology for the combination of cast aluminum and CFRP.   more
