  • Adhesion to Fluoropolymersby D.M. Brewis; R.H. Dahm

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2005; US$ 153.00

    In this review the principles of adhesion are considered first (Section 2). Techniques that have greatly increased our understanding of adhesion to fluoropolymers are described in Section 3. Cases where good adhesion is achieved without a pretreatment are examined in Section 4. However, as pretreatments are usually needed to get the required level... more...

  • In-Mould Decoration of Plasticsby J.C. Love; V. Goodship

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2002; US$ 144.00

    Many plastic components need to have a surface finish applied before use. This can act as a decorative layer, a protective layer, to smooth out surface defects, or to alter surface properties (for example, to enhance adhesion). If this surface effect is applied during the moulding process, it can reduce time, space, material and machinery requirements.... more...
