A study was conducted to understand how a rubber-modified adhesive fails according to the ductility change of epoxy resin, and the nature of rubbers used. To assess the roles of the rubber particles, four kinds of the modifiers were added in an epoxy adhesive, and compared to their effectiveness for toughening in the adhesive. Experimental evidence support the mechanism of the CTBNB rubber agglomeration at the metal/adhesive interface as a major factor in influencing GIc.
