Abstract : This investigation highlights rationale to synthesize epoxy–novolac adhesive by novel interpenetrating network (IPN) technique. Physicochemical characteristics of the plain adhesive and IPN adhesive were carried out by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and thermal gravimetric analysis. Performing lap-shear test carried out plasma-nitrided titanium was fabricated with these adhesives and mechanical property of these adhesives. The blend of epoxy and novolac was optimized at 4:1 ratio, and the formation of IPN was confirmed by the suppression of creep with reference to neat epoxy and its swelling behavior. The adhesive with IPN shows significantly higher thermal stability than epoxy and leaves higher amount of residuals at the elevated temperature. Due to surface modification of titanium by plasma nitriding, wetting characteristics of titanium increases considerably and consequently, there was a significant increase in lap-shear strength adhesively of bonded titanium substrate. © 2015 Taylor amp; Francis
