This article examines the influence of various treatments on the adhesion properties of different fibers, addresses, some of the problem areas, and provides a brief summary of this technology. Various surface treatments have been developed to modify the chemical surface layer of fibers to make them more suitable for bonding to a polymeric material. These surface treatments make possible many high performance products including rigid composite structures, fiber reinforced tires, reinforcement for adhesive / sealant formulation, carpet backings, footwear, and clothingThere is a wide range of natural and manufactured textile fibers available. Satisfactory adhesion depends on the nature of the fiber surface, the presence of natural or added impurities, and the effects of physical and chemical treatments prior to bonding. This article examines the influence of various treatments on the adhesion properties of different fibers, addresses some of the problem areas, and provides a brief summary of this technology.

dear Sirs,thank you for good information.however this not yomplete regarding the surface treatment.the UV-ligth is splittet of in UVA,UVB and UVC.UVA and UVB is used for curing.UVC is used for treatment.special is used the 254 with 185 nm range and also the 172 nm range.also a combination of both ranges is possible.additional als Plasma can be used befor UVC_treatment.we do this already with very good results.with the combination we can used the better wetting of the surface and with the UVC the radicalformation.ith special developed adhesives for this process new material concepts cam be VOC-free realized.ALL with the TACKTREAT-process.We can send you more details.best regards emil schmid
