Plasma Polymer Films Prepared by Means of Decomposition of Polymeric Solids

Abstract

Thermal evaporation of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) is performed with or without an activation of volatile fragments in an rf glow discharge. Without plasma assistance evaporated films are a mixture of aliphatic hydrocarbons. These films are not stable in contact with water. The activation in plasma enhances cross-linking and the films become… (More)
