This volume documents the proceedings of the International Symposium on Adhesion Aspects of Thin Films (including Adhesion Measurement, and Metallized plastics) held in Orlando, FL, December 15-16, 2003. This volume is divided into three parts. Part 1 â€œGeneral Papersâ€; Part 2 â€œMetallized Plasticsâ€; and Part 3 â€œAdhesion Measurementâ€. The topics covered include: Factors influencing adhesion of thin films; relevance of stresses in film adhesion; surface effects on intrinsic thin film stresses; adhesion improvement; hemocompatibility of DLC coatings; thin films of various materials on a host of substrates; thin polymer films; surface modification of polymers; adhesion of metal films on polymers; investigation of metal-polymer interactions; adhesion measurement; scratch test; microscratch test; and abrasion and durability of thin films.
'Papers are well documented and illustrated with photos, charts and data, and references. For those researchers involved with thin films this book is RECOMMENDED.' Adhesives & Sealants Newlsetter, 2005.
