Correlating Interfacial Moisture Content and Adhesive Fracture Energy of Polymer Coatings on Different Surfaces
The adhesion of polymer film of PMMA to different surfaces was measured using the shaft-loaded blister test. The exposure of the films to saturated water vapor generally leads to a decrease in adhesive strength. The adhesion loss was directly related to the moisture accumulation at the polymer/substrate interface as measured using neutron reflectivity.
