Surface Modification of Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer Rubber by Plasma Polymerization Using Organosilicon Precursors
The effect of Atmospheric Pressure Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (AP-PECVD) on Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) with the precursors hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDSO) and tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) on roughness, chemical composition as well as wetting and friction properties has...
Characterization of Rough PTFE Surfaces by the Modified Wilhelmy Balance Technique
Bioplastics - a sustainable solution?
Plastic is a product that has a wide range of applications, but the product also has a disadvantage - it is not degradable. It can be recycled and used for new purposes. The presentation includes the following aspects: typical applications of polymers, bioplastics, biodegradation, biorefining...
Friction and wetting of elastomer composites
This presentation features the current state of research with respect to wetting and friction of elastomers. Plasma and varnished elastomer composites have been characterized by different wetting methods and friction investigations. Furthermore, it has been shown that the use of graphene-like...
Characterization of modified elastomer surfaces by wetting
Surface and interface phenomena play a very important role in many technical processes, including bonding and coating processes, surface printing, friction and wear behavior. A well-known natural surface phenomenon is the lotus effect, which can be attributed to the surface microstructure and...
