    Helbawi's "Difference in subsurface damage in indented specimens with and without bonding layer," Int J Mech Sci 43 1107-1121 (2001) gives the value to be 1.2 GPa, which seems about right.

    Huh. I would have thought a cured adhesive would be a lot more stiff than that. Ya learn something new every day.
