Abstract : The objective of this study was to develop an epoxy adhesive system having temperature/ strength capabilities equal to or better than states of the art adhesives but having increased toughness through optimization of these properties in the ADX-516 (AF-A-3516) SYSTEM. These properties should be attainable in both metal to metal bonds and in honeycomb sandwich construction over a temperature range of -67 to 420 F. A process for practical production of the adhesive is developed. (P.S.-PL)
