This guide describes the requirements for phosphoric acid anodizing of aluminum and its alloys for structural adhesive bonding.
The procedure included herein is based on the commercial practice of numerous agencies and organizations. The method may be revised or supplemented, as necessary, to include methods based on proven performance.
The surface preparation of metal systems used for qualification and quality-control testing of the adhesive should be agreed upon between the manufacturer and the user.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
