For the determination of material properties of adhesives at high as well as cryogenic temperatures within the scope of the related ESA programme (ESA Programm) several test were performed:

  • Temperatures: 77k (cryostat, LN2 cooling) , 80°C (thermal chamber)
  • Selection of adhesives for the test campaign
  • Specification of test procedure, standards and specimen geometry
  • Development of test setup and measurement system configuration
  • Tests:
    • Shear tests
    • Tensile tests
