This volume documents the proceedings of the Second International Symposium on Adhesion Aspects of Polymeric Coatings held in Newark, New Jersey, May 25-26, 2000. Since the first symposium, held in 1981, there had been tremendous research activity relative to the adhesion aspects of polymeric coatings. Polymeric coatings are used for a variety of purposes. Irrespective of the intended purpose of the coating, it must adequately adhere to the underlying substrate, otherwise delamination and other undesirable phenomena occur. So the need to understand the factors which influence adhesion of polymeric coatings and to control it to a desirable level is quite patent. This volume contains a total of 13 papers, which were all properly peer reviewed, revised and edited before inclusion. Furthermore, the authors were asked to update their manuscripts, so the information contained in this book should be current and fresh. The topics covered in this book include: factors influencing adhesion of polymeric coatings; ways to improve adhesion; formation and relevance of interphase in practical adhesion; adhesion/cohesion in painted plastics; imaging of polymer surfaces; effect of substrate residue (smut) on coating process; surface treatment of metals and glass by silanes; surface modification of polyphenylene sulfide plastics; resin bonding in dentistry; measurement of internal stresses in polymeric coatings; effect of steel surface composition on adhesion of paint; wet adhesion of coatings on wood; and modified tape test to measure adhesion of coatings.
