Abstract

From screening tests of candidate resins of the vinyl ester type, an acrylic modified bisphenol-A epoxy prepolymer appeared to be a promising candidate for radiation curing. The program then concentrated on optimizing this resin in formulations with three different vinyl functional monomers. Single lap-shear aluminum-to-aluminum test specimens were cured with electron beam irradiations over a wide range of doses. The resulting data show that two of the adhesive systems, radiation cured at ambient temperatures, have superior strength retention at 150 degree C.
