Influence of the Type of Adhesive on the Properties of the GFRP Composite Adhesive Joint, Determined on the Basis of the Static T-Peel Test


The article presents the results of experimental studies determining the influence of the type of adhesive on the static strength properties of the Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) composite joint determined on the basis of the T-peel test. As part of the static tests on peeling joints, a comparison of peak load and stiffness for individual joints was made. The fracture surfaces were also analyzed, showing various failure mechanisms. It was shown that the variant of joints made with the Enguard BP72A polyester adhesive was characterized by the highest strength properties with a mean peak load of 836.73 N.
