Abstract

The effect of plasma treatment, utilizing a variety of feed gases and treatment times, on the wetting and adhesion of nylon-6,6 is investigated. Unidirectional fiber-reinforced nylon-6,6 laminated were prepared from a dry prepreg using a hot press under high pressure. The mold was lined with a woven Teflon film to facilitate removal of the laminate. The effect of argon, oxygen, nitrogen, and ammonia plasmas is discussed, the most efficient being oxygen. An attempt is made to interpret results in terms of probable increases in surface functionalization.
