Carbon fiber with its excellent performance in many applications more and more widely, our daily life most of the time, some carbon fiber structures and metal structure is connected, and the most common connection between them there are two methods of connecting and bonding machine.
Bonding: bonding is the process of connecting two adhesive joints by using mechanical adhesive force, physical adsorption force and chemical bond force on the joint surface. This method is not only suitable for the same material, in the connection of different materials can also play a good role, and the bonding process is easy to operate, not in need of sophisticated equipment, do not need to work in a high temperature environment, so the bonded parts easy to deformation, in most cases, with good adhesive joints the corrosion resistance of the adhesive, but if the choice is undeserved, can cause the connection strength is not stable, it is difficult to control the quality of.
Mechanical connection: mechanical connection process refers to the process and method of connecting parts by fasteners. Mechanical connection is still a common method for transferring parts with higher load. In simple terms, the mechanical connection design of carbon fiber can be divided into four parts, connection geometry, fastener layout, stress analysis, failure analysis. Mechanical connections do not require surface treatment, and are not subjected to thermal cycling and negative effects of high hygrothermal environments, and are easy to disassemble.
