May 27, 2010
sir I am the final year student of materials engineering.
in my final year project, I am facing the main hurdle about the adhesion problem of aluminum foil of about 0.1- 0.2mm and polyester/epoxy resin.I have tried a method of scratch off an oxide surface of aluminum by sandpaper but no satisfactory result is achieved. Kindly suggest me a solution.

Since you area student I will give you a reference to get out of the library and reference in your thesis.
ASM Engineered Materials Handbook Vol 3.
Section on Surface Preparation of Metals
That should give you enough ideas to be going on with and a reference to show where you got it from and your literature search
