    This study presents a new high-throughput instrument for characterizing the shear strength of fibre/matrix interface. The developed instrument is applied to mechanical characterization of glass fibre/epoxy interface. As an application example, the time-dependent degradation of the adhesion properties of glass fibre sizing is studied. For this purpose, 480 microbond tests on ECR-glass/epoxy samples were performed. The degradation of the interfacial shear strength of the studied glass fibre was shown to be notable over time.
