Methodology of assessment of adhesive composites' properties (in English)
Polimery 2013, No 2, 114
The paper presents research proposition of methodology of adhesive composites' properties assessment, which was developed on the basis of numerous own researches and analysis of references. Using the proposed methodology, there were conducted experimental tests of a new Belzona 1831 adhesive composite, which can be applied on the wet and insufficiently cleaned surfaces. It appeared that the tested material exhibits much lower compression strength and creep resistance in connection to field repairs of military equipment, than previously tested adhesive composite of „super metal” group — Belzona 1111. Therefore, it does not seem to be useful with repair that guarantee long lasting effectiveness, but only temporary repairs with relative low level of load of repaired element. In contrast to Belzona 1111, the researched adhesive composite can be applied on the wet surfaces since it showed adhesion to steel wet surfaces.
