Long-term tensile creep tests were carried out inside a climate chamber using sustained loading levels, temperature and humidity as the parameters for the study. The specimens were kept loaded inside the climate chamber for 1000 h. Standard Tensile Tests (STT), Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) tests were carried out to characterize the adhesive used. In general, the results obtained revealed that changing temperature and humidity conditions greatly affect not only instantaneous and creep strain values, but also time to failure, leading to a change in the overall behavior of the adhesive" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "The authors acknowledge the support provided by the Spanish Government (Ministerio de Economía y Competividad).
