Abstract

Data are presented which show that the peel strength of polyethylene coatings on metals is increased by rapid quenching from the melt. This can be understood in terms of the increased elongation to break of the quenched polymer. The effect of test temperature and rate on adhesion of polyethylene to metals depends on the substrate. Where failure is cohesive at room temperature, peel strength falls with rise in temperature corresponding to a fall in energy to break of the polymer. Other substrates show an initial rise in adhesion and a change in failure mode.
