Effect of silane sizing on polymer-glass adhesion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Several types of common polymers were deposited on glass slides sililated with organofunctional silanes. The extent of surface coverage, adsorbed layer thickness and topology were experimentally determined. The strength of polymer interaction with the silane treated glass was investigated using contact-mode AFM. The interaction strength to the surface was found to be dominated by hydrophobic/hydrophilic interactions and hydrogen bonds.
