Friction stir welding for hybrid joininig of polymers to metals

Reference number
Coordinator Swerea KIMAB AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration December 2010 - December 2011
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

In this project the hypothesis is tested that friction stir welding is a suitable method for hybrid joining of metals to polymers including composites. Friction stir welding is an established joining method for aluminium. A limited number of trials are presented in the literature for friction stir welding of polymer substrates to themselves. In this project the possibilities are studied to friction stir weld hybrid substrates of metals to polymers.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
