Adhesive technology in the automotive industry

  • 1 Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technical university of Kosice, Slovakia


The paper presents the results of the research focused on the determination of the quality of adhesive joints of cold rolled sheets in the automotive industry. DC05 galvanized sheet was used for joints. A progressive type of adhesive used in the automotive industry was chosen. The shear and peel strength of the adhesive joints according to Winter were determined. The strength of the joints was determined depending on the cure temperature of the adhesive. After tests, the character of fracture surfaces of adhesive joints was evaluated.
