Efficient joining of hybrid thermoset/thermoplastic composite joints is critical to produce high performance lightweight structures while keeping the cost low. Herein, a high-power UV-irradiation technique was proposed to rapidly active the surfaces of PEEK and PPS composites for the following co-cure joining with epoxy composites. A single...

A high-power UV-irradiation technique was proposed for the surface treatment of PPS and PEEK composites, aiming to achieve good adhesion with epoxy adhesives. The composite substrates were rapidly UV-irradiated for a duration of between 2–30s, and then bonded using an aerospace film adhesive to produce joints. Tensile lap-shear strength and...

Thermoplastic composite spot welded joints are more well-suited for carrying shear load rather than peel load. However, peel load is difficult to be eliminated in single-lap joint configuration. In this paper, a series of mechanical tests were carried out to study the effects of the spot spacing and the number of welded spots on the secondary...
