- Application of plasma know-how in textile industries. Sujatha, K. // Indian Textile Journal;May2010, Vol. 120 Issue 8, p26
This article considers the use of plasma technologies in the textile industry. Thermal plasma and cold or non-equilibrium plasma are the two kinds of plasma technology for industrial processes. It notes that the grafting of a compound on the fibre or surface modification by means of discharges...
- Free radicals created by plasmas cause autohesive bonding in polymers. Awaja, Firas; McKenzie, David R.; Shengnan Zhang; James, Natalie // Applied Physics Letters;5/23/2011, Vol. 98 Issue 21, p211504
We find that plasma immersion ion implantation of polymer surfaces enhances their autohesive bond strength when pressed together by more than a factor of five. Both polymerising (CH4/O2) and nonpolymerising (Ar) plasmas are effective. There is currently no satisfactory theory for predicting this...
