Oxford Advanced Surfaces Group Plc (OAS) recently
announced the development of a new technology that promotes adhesion with a range
of industrial epoxy adhesives. The Onto®
adhesion promoter can increase adhesion to materials such
as polyimides and PET polymers where epoxy adhesives on their own fail to
achieve satisfactory bonding.
Onto adhesion promoters can be several
nanometers to several microns thick depending on the application. They can be
used with a range of substrates including polymers, inorganic materials, and
metals, and can be applied with a choice of wet application processes.
Potential applications for this new industrial
adhesion promoter are within the hi-tech engineering, aerospace, automotive,
electronics semiconductors, displays, and printed circuit boards industries. It
can also be used in industrial packaging, industrial coatings, composites, and
OAS develops and commercializes advanced
material solutions that are cost effective and deliver valuable changes to the
functionality of all kinds of surfaces via their platform surface modification
technology. OAS uses proprietary highly reactive chemistry in combination with
polymers and/or particles to provide solutions that deliver enhanced
performance and enable new opportunities. Initial applications include
adhesion, anti-tarnishing of silver, anti-reflectance coatings and particle
delivery in markets including advanced composites and laminates, electronics,
lighting, displays, and fast-moving consumer goods.
