Atmospheric pressure plasma treatment
of polyamide-12 foils

Languages of publication
The surface of a polyamide-12 (PA-12) foil was modified in order to improve the adhesive properties by two types of atmospheric pressure plasma sources. The samples were characterized using contact angle measurement, adhesive properties measurement and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The ageing of the plasma modification was also studied. A significant increase in wettability was observed at different treatment times. The same effect was also seen in the adhesive properties - the adhesion was increased almost 12 times for 10 s DCSBD treatment in comparison to untreated PA-12. XPS analysis confirmed chemical changes due to the plasma modification of the PA-12. It was concluded that both plasma sources improve the adhesive properties of PA-12, with DCSBD obtaining better results.
