Adhesion promotion, resistance, and control is a crucial element of successful bonding, sealing, and gasketing operations. There are occasions where an application needs the most aggressive bond possible and other applications that require less aggressive techniques. Ultimately, the bond strength only needs to be as strong as the weakest bonded surface.
There are many methods of adhesion promotion and all of them have their strengths and weaknesses:
1) Flame treatment
2) Corona or plasma treatment
3) Solvent etch treatment
4) UV "bedding" materials
5) Soda or Sandblast etc
6) Adhesion promotion chemistries
Over the last two decades of dealing with adhesive, sealant, and gasket applications, New Precision Technology has implemented all of these processes and more.
