UV Surface Treatment of Polycarbonate for Adhesion Improvement to Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)
The adhesion of self-adhesive liquid silicone rubbers to thermoplasts is only possible for a few selected material combinations without a surface pretreatment. A UV pretreatment is effective for polycarbonate and short irradiation periods are sufficient. To clarify the required irradiation conditions that result in an improvement of adhesion, the varying irradiation conditions were assessed. FTIR-ATR spectroscopy was used for surface analysis to characterize the change in the polymer surface.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
