Measuring thickness of adhesive layer without damaging it

  1. Dec 10, 2008 #1
    I need to come up with parameters that will affect adhesive bond strength; tensile strength, shear modulus, yield strength, hardness.

    (The adhesive is UV-curable)

    So far I have come up with 3 parameters - thickness, duration of expoure to UV-light and property. Im intending to plot a 3d-graph of every property (tensile strength, shear modulus, yield strength etc.), letting x-axis be duration, y-axis be thickness and z-axis be the desired property. The highest point on the z-axis would be the mos favorable property.
