Modification of polymer surfaces using atmospheric pressure barrier discharges

Journal of Advanced Oxidation Technologies 9 (2006) 228-231

The objective of the present work is the development of a technique for the deposition of thin films, by means of an atmospheric pressure discharge, onto a pulp board surface, with the desired surface energy, permeability and wear resistant surface. The deposition of thin films was carried out by a surface barrier discharge at the atmospheric pressure. The films were deposited from mixtures of C4F8 with nitrogen. The properties of the thin film substrate systems were investigated by means of contact angle measurement and industrial permeability tests. The chemical composition of the films was studied by means of a Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The mechanical properties of the films were studied by means of depth sensing indentation tests performed on samples deposited upon glass plate. The surface topographies of coated and uncoated samples were investigated using a scanning electron microscope.
