The effect of laser pre-oxidation of stainless steel on joining to polyamide by the LAMP method

Among the factors affecting the efficiency of laser-assisted metal and polymer (LAMP) joints, the surface condition of the joint components is one of the most important ones. So, the present study explored the effect of laser pre-oxidation of stainless steel 304 (SS304), as a novel pretreatment method, on SS304/polyamide 6 joint strength. The assessments revealed that in spite of the potential of surface pre-oxidation of SS304 for improving joint strength, the strength of the joint was reduced by ~25 % in practice because, firstly, the wettability of the metal by the polymer was reduced due to the reduction of heat transfer by the metal in the pre-oxidized zone and secondly, the oxide layer formed on SS304 surface had a weak adherence due to the kinetic presence of Fe2O3. Hence, when using pre-oxidation, it is necessary to consider the nature of the oxide layer on the metal surface and the optimal variables of the joining process for the new conditions to achieve appropriate strength.
