Title: A plasma polymerization investigation and low temperature cascade arc plasma for polymeric surface modification
Author: Gilliam, Mary A., 1978-
Date: 2006
Publisher: University of Missouri--Columbia
Abstract: The plasma polymerization behavior of fluorocarbon systems was investigated using the monomers C₃F₆, C₂H₂F₄, C₄F₁₀ and C₃F₆O, which were compared to methane and butane, Section III. In Sections V and VII, surface modification treatments were performed on seven polymers using low temperature cascade arc torch (LTCAT) of Ar with or without adding reactive gas of O₂ or H₂O. Static and dynamic surface characterization techniques were used to examine changes in wettability and surface stability and surface degradation. In Section VI, a stainless steel mesh was placed in LTCAT to study its disturbance effects on LTCAT itself and on polymeric surface modification treatments.
