This presentation gives an overview of the intrinsic manufacturing of hybrid structures of steel or aluminum, respectively, and a carbon fiber reinforced polymer component (CFRP) by the resin transfer molding process (RTM). The most significant challenges in the manufacturing of hybrid metal-CFRP components are the generation of a satisfying adhesion and the avoidance of contact corrosion in the interface area. A nanoscale laser pre-treatment of the metal surface should improve the adhesion and suitable isolating layers in the interface area should eliminate problems regarding contact corrosion. The presentation is focused on the influence of the laser nano-structuring on the mechanical and corrosive properties of the described hybrid materials.
