When bonding dissimilar types of materials, surface treatment can be used to improve adhesion

Whether bonding metal to plastic, silicon to glass, polymers to other polymers of different durometers, biological content to polymeric microtiter plates or even bonding to polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), plasma can be used to promote adhesion.

Adhesion promotion can be achieved by increasing the surface free energy in many ways, including precision cleaning, chemically or physically ...
