The focus of this volume is toward a thorough understanding of the factors that affect the adhesion of metals to polymer surfaces. Its 36 chapters present a variety of approaches to control the factors that affect adhesion and a clear discussion of the available study techniques. Among thebroad topics covered are surface analysis techniques, surface morphology and modification, and interfacial interaction. These are clarified by specific examples of adhesion of various metals to polymers, application techniques such as evaporation and sputtering of metals onto polymide, and theeffect of aging on adhesion. In addition, many techniques are described for surface analysis, nuclear scattering, and trace element detection.Sacher, Edward is the author of 'Metallization of Polymers' with ISBN 9780841218680 and ISBN 0841218684.
