Adhesion behavior of polymer networks with tailored mechanical properties using spherical and flat contacts


Four acrylate-based networks were developed such that they possessed similar glass transition temperature (∼− 37 °C) but varied in material stiffness at room temperature by an order of magnitude (2–12 MPa). Thermo-mechanical and adhesion testing were performed to investigate the effect of elastic modulus on adhesion profiles of the developed samples… (More)
