Improvement of adhesion between poly(ethylene terephthalate) and polyethylene

Durgun, H
Bayram, Göknur
Three-layer films were prepared with polyethylene (PE) and poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) films as the outer layers and a film of high-density polyethylene (HDPE)/ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer blend as the inner layer using compression molding. E-MA-GMA, an elastomer containing an epoxy functional group, was used as the adhesion promoting agent in the multilayer films. The effects of processing temperature, pressure application time and elastomer concentration on adhesion were investigated. The adhesion strength between PE and PET films increased with increasing bonding temperature, bonding time and elastomer concentration. From contact angle measurements, it was observed that the work of adhesion between the polymers increased with increasing amount of elastomer. Improved adhesion between PET and HDPE with 30% clastomer films was confirmed by SEM analyses of the film layers. Using FT-IR analysis of PE/HDPE-30% elastomer/PET delaminated film, the decrease in peak intensity of the epoxy groups tends to indicate reaction of epoxy functionality with functional groups in PET.

The effects of different laser treatments on some mechanical properties of acrylic resin and soft liner were investigated. A total of 60 test specimens were fabricated according to test requirements. The specimens were roughened with Potassium-ticanyl-Phosphate (KTP), Er:YAG, and Nd:YAG lasers before application of soft liner. The flexural, peel, and tensile bond strengths were measured using a universal testing machine. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy with attenuated total reflectance (FTIR-ATR) sp...

Zn-In-Se thin films were fabricated on the ultrasonically cleaned glass substrates masked with clover-shaped geometry by thermal evaporation of its elemental sources. Temperature-dependent conductivity characteristics of the films were investigated under dark and illuminated conditions. The semiconductor type of the films was found as n-type by thermal probe test. According to the van der Pauw technique, the dark electrical conductivity analyses showed that the variations of conductivity of unannealed and a...

In this work, polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) thin films were fabricated by aluminum induced crystallization (AIC) technique. SiNx, deposited as a function of NH3/SiH4 ratio, and AZO (Al-doped ZnO) films on glass were used as a buffer layer between glass and Si film. The effect of buffer layer content on the crystallinity of poly-Si thin films was studied by Raman analysis which shows that fully crystallization without stress was achieved for all samples. Moreover, the preferred crystalline orientation an...
Microtensile Bond Strength of Self-Adhesive Resin-Based Dental Cement to Bleached Enamel
Tamam, Evsen; Keskin, Selda; Ucatasli, Mine Betuel (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
This study investigated the effectiveness of bleaching agents on the micro tensile bond strength (mu TBS) of self-adhesive luting cement and enamel. A total of 126 samples were prepared from the labial surfaces of permanent human maxillary central incisors and assigned into three groups with 42 samples each as: control, enamel bleached with 10% hydrogen peroxide (HP), and enamel bleached with 10% carbamide peroxide (CP). Rely X Unicem (R) (3 M, ESPE) was used as self-adhesive resin cement. The total testing...

This work indicates the device properties of polycrystalline p-AgGaInTe2 (AGIT) thin films deposited on bare and ITO-coated glass substrates with thermal evaporation technique. Device characteristics of n-CdS/p-AGIT heterostructure have been analyzed in terms of current-voltage (I-V) for different temperatures and capacitance-voltage (C-V) measurements for different frequencies, respectively. The series and shunt resistances were determined from the analysis of parasitic resistance for high forward and reve...
