Item description for Plasma Surface Modification of Polymers: Relevance to Adhesion by M. Strobel...
This collection of invited papers - previously published in special issues of the "Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology" - is written by international researchers actively working in the field of plasma surface modification. It provides a current, comprehensive overview of the plasma treatment of polymers. In contrast to plasma polymerization, plasma surface modification reactions do not cause thin-film deposition, and can therefore only modify the surface properties of organic substrates. Plasma surface modifications are fast, efficient methods for improving the adhesion properties and other surface characteristics of a variety of polymeric materials. The focus of this volume is on adhesion phenomena, surface properties and the surface characterization of plasma-treated materials. The book opens with a critical review of the plasma surface modification of polymers for improved adhesion. The remainder of the papers are divided into two sections, one dealing with the characterization of plasma-treated surfaces, and the second concerned with various practical applications of plasma-treated surfaces. This book should be a useful resource for researchers in the field of plasma and adhesion science for many years.
