Wettability Defined and Correlation to Bonding
There is usually a good correlation between bonding and wetting. Wettability can be defined as ...
Bonding plastics can yield big manufacturing results, but requires unique expertise. Whether bonding plastic to metal, polymers or other materials, look to TriStar’s Surface Modification team to help you improve adhesion properties. We’ll help you get the job done, and we’ll do it all in-house.
With surface modification you can alters the surface energy of plastics to promote better adhesion, produce biocompatibility, create permanent moisture and hydrophobic characteristics, as well as micro-clean and functionalize your components. The process improves the success of secondary processing applications such as painting and assembly so that your products last longer.
Whether you need engineering assistance or material selection support, our Ask the Experts feature provides a quick and easy way for you to upload your drawing and submit questions to our engineering team.
TriStar's Enhanced Materials Division (EMD) harnesses the knowledge and extensive experience of our on-staff engineers and chemists to develop innovative materials and material treatments to solve complex engineering challenges. Specialties include surface-modifying plasma treatments, PTFE and PES membranes, and unique adhesive and primer products.
