Abstract : Many rare and unusual metals have outstanding heat resistance and chemical stability. Where applications of these materials require smooth surfaces free from irregularities, adhesive bonding is generally specified. Results of adhesion tests with these metals are of special interest since bond ability data are not readily available. Steel specimens were bonded to beryllium, columbium (niobium), copper-beryllium alloy, molybdenum, palladium, rhenium, stainless steel, tantalum, tungsten, uranium, zirconium, and 720 alloy (manganese-copper-nickel). Also, chromium, gold, silver, stainless steel, and titanium were bonded to themselves. Tensile strength of the bonds is shown in Table 1.
