Direct Bonding of Dissimilar Materials Having 3D Nanostructured Interfaces



● Application of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) composites  to vehicles and improvement of their productivity, recyclability and fuel economy
● Development of joining technology between CFRTP and aluminum alloy for the multimaterial light weigh vehicles


● Fabrication of nanospike structure (NSS) on aluminum surfaces
● Direct joining of CFRTP and Al by hotpress
● Improvement of adhesive strength by silane-coupling treatment


● Higher adhesion strength due to anchor effects
● Excellent in recyclability for only Al and CFRTP use


● Direct bonding of transportation equipment members by hotpress molding
● Development of new composites based on CFRTP and Al


  • Comparison of adhesion strength
  • Observation of fracture surfaces by FE-SEM
