Atomic Interfacial Mixing to Create Water Insensitive Adhesion
The concept of Atomic Interfacial Mixing (AIM) is suggested to account for the enhanced water-resistant adhesion of plasma-deposited polymer to various substrate materials. The interfacial interactions were achieved using several techniques involving two basic methods. One method involves using ion implantation to modify the interface. The second method involves manipulation of the plasma discharge conditions to control plasma/substrate interactions. A variety of experimental techniques yields results which provide strong support for the concept of AIM.
