Adhesive Joining and Disassembling of Alumina (Al2O3) – Steel

Adhesive Joining and Disassembling of Alumina (Al2O3) – Steel


This research activity was conducted within J-TECH@POLITO, Advanced Joining Technologies inter-departmental research centre funded by Politecnico di Torino.

The aim of this research activity was to study the adhesive joining and disassembling of alumina inserts to C-45 steel. The joining was targeted to ensure that the alumina inserts remain intact to steel roller surface (minimum joint shear strength ≥10 MPa) during the operation. While the disassembling target was to ensure the easy replacement of individual alumina inserts broken/damaged during the operation.
