The long-term durability of hybrid structures (metal – carbon fiber reinforced polymer) are investigated in this study using outdoor aging tests. For the metallic adherend different pre-treatment methods were used before welding. The welded samples were exposed to the environment for 6, 9 and 12 months and afterwards tested by lap shear tests. The different pre-treatment methods show great influence of the bonding quality with respect to the exposed time.
