Abstract A controllable adhesive disbonding mechanism can be achieved by incorporating, and then activating, functional additives located within the matrix of an adhesively bonded joint. This action facilitates the disassembly and material recovery of structurally bonded assemblies. The engineering capabilities of bonded joints containing a range of chemical or physical foaming agents were investigated. Joint disassembly was measured as a function of additive chemistries, physical properties… CONTINUE READING
