[Abstract]: This paper compares the lap shear strengths of 3 types of random glass fibre reinforced thermoplastic matrix composites joined by adhesives using microwave energy. Variable frequency microwave (VFM) (2 – 18 GHz) facilities are used to join thirty three percent by weight random glass fibre reinforced low density polyethylene composite [LDPE/GF (33%)], thirty three percent by weight random glass fibre reinforced polystyrene composite [PS/GF (33%)] and thirty three percent by weight random glass fibre reinforced Nylon 66 composite [Nylon 66/GF (33%)]. With a given power level, the composites were exposed to various exposure times to microwave irradiation. The primer or coupling agent used was 5-minute two-part adhesive.
