New steel compositions and novel surface modification technologies aim at improved mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. However, the durability of adhesive joints between these advanced materials especially in corrosive environments are mostly below expectations. This proposal aims at an improved understanding of adhesion, de-adhesion and degradation kinetics and mechanisms of adhesives by means of novel spectroscopic, microscopic and electrochemical techniques. The project
moreover focuses on development of improved failure analysis techniques targeting a mechanistic understanding to provide a basis for faster product development in the steel industry.
