Testing of technology for joining materials in the automotive industry

  • 1 Technical University in Košice, Slovakia


Research on composite materials is nowadays developed on a global scale, because they have multipurpose applications. Composite materials are used in a wide range of industries. The most significant advantages of composite materials include st rength, stiffness, low fibre density (e.g. carbon fibre or glass fibre), the ability to make them into any shape required for the application. The paper deals with the possibilities of joining composite materials with metallic materials. The experimental part includes tests of the strength of the chosen type of adhesive and comparison of the individual results obtained by the experiment.
