Glue PA66 with aluminum

Glue PA66 with aluminum

(OP)
Could you suggest a good adhesive for bonding polyamide PA66 to an aluminum block? The assembly should hold relatively high static loads under ambient conditions. As the bonding area is not large, I am looking for material with 10-15MPa shear strength and having a problem with this. The adhesives I have found have typically the strength about 3-5MPa. Thanks for advice.

(OP)
Even epoxy (e.g. Araldite2011) has average lap shear strength about 4MPa, since polyamide is not easily glueable. Is the cyanacrylat not the better option to glue PA and aluminum? It has at least the better performance on material data sheet.
