Adhesion can be defined as the ability of one molecule to attach to another molecule. In textile materials, it is defined as the ability of two different materials to adhere to each other. Adhesion forces become important when the textile material is coated with a polymer or is in a matrix. The adhesion-adhesion force between two surfaces varies depending on the diffusion characteristics of the material and the surface micro-roughness. With Plasma Adhesion, the surface morphology of the material changes and adhesion develops accordingly. Improvement of adhesion through surface modification using simultaneous cleaning with Plasma Adhesion, better adhesion capacity and bond strength is provided on the surfaces to be joined.
With the Plasma Adhesion process, weakly bound surface impurities are removed, and polar and functional groups are formed to increase surface wear and surface energy. Thanks to these effects, the adhesion between the coating material and the surface increases and a better adhesion of the coating to the surface is ensured.
