Bonding Custom Aluminum Panels To Steel
Hey all, I'm a little more experienced when it comes to bonding composites to aluminum than I am to bonding aluminum to steel. I'm interested in forming some custom body panels out of sheet aluminum, as opposed to making them out of fiberglass, that will require bonding.
In composite to aluminum bonding you usually clean the aluminum surface with a sctoch brite pad until you're able to get an unbroken film (water doesn't bead up) of distilled water when applied. Once this is done you etch the surface with alodine, apply an epoxy primer and you're good to go. Does this sound like an effective technique to use when bonding to steel??
