Abstract

New advances in surface treatments to electrically insulating polymeric films have improved the ability of resins to bond with these materials. This paper evaluates the strength of these bonds at low temperatures in transverse tension and combined shear/tension using a specimen geometry designed to minimise stress raisers from discontinuities in the specimen. Bond strengths of 100 to 150 MPa are reported.
