Technical Paper -
This paper reviews the work published in the open literature related to polymer metal hybrid (PMH) approaches used to promote the direct (adhesive-free) adhesion between metal and injection molded thermoplastics. Several different approaches are discussed including mechanical interlocking, primer coating, and chemical modification of the thermoplastic. For each of these approaches, the...
