Abstract:

Surface properties of various commercial polymer films have been studied before and after a brief exposure to low-temperature gas plasmas. The surface properties investigated include wettability by water and how well vapor-deposited aluminum adhered to the polymer surface. Excellent adhesion of aluminum was found for polymers that had been exposed to the gas plasma.
