    Abstract

    A series of tests was performed on sandwich panel housing components made with glass fiber-reinforced polyester (FRP) laminates. Specifically, long- and short-term tests were performed to evaluate the adhesive bonds between the FRP laminate facings and cores of the panels. Specimens of two different FRP laminates were analyzed and their bonding characteristics with two different adhesives were studied. The test data show that the bond strength was significantly affected by the laminate formulation, adhesive formulation, adhesive thickness, sustained loading, and temperature.
