Abstract
THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A THERMOSETTING POLYMERIC ADHESIVE AND CURING METHOD THAT WILL NOT REQUIRE CURE CYCLES IN AN OVEN OR A PRESS AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES. THE PROGRAM WILL ENCOMPASS A STUDY OF THE RESPONSIVENESS OF THERMOSETTING EPOXY ADHESIVES TO DIELECTRIC, INDUCTION, ULTRASONIC, ULTRE-VIOLET, AND INFRARED ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGIES. ENERGY SENSITIZERS WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR IMPROVING THE ADHESIVE'S RESPONSIVENESS TOWARDS ENERGIES SHOWING LIMITED EFFECTS. A FINAL EVALUATION OF THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES RELATING TO THE CURE OF THE ADHESIVE WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A NOVE CURING THERMOSETTING POLYMERIC ADHESIVE.
