The objective of this work was to determine surface properties of polymer surfaces after plasma treatment with the aim of further cytocompatibility tests. Examined polymers were poly(ethyleneterephthalate) (PET), high-density poly- ethylene (HDPE), poly(tetrafluoro-ethylene) (PTFE) and poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA). Goniometry has shown that the plasma treatment was immediately followed by a sharp decrease of contact angle of the surface. In the course of ageing the contact angle increased due to… CONTINUE READING
