Abstract

The quenching from the melt of polyethylene coatings on steel, polished copper and black-oxidized copper increased their adhesion. The fracture surfaces examined in a scanning electron microscope showed the quenched polymer had a more fibrous texture. Quenching lowered the crystallinity and yield strength of the polymer but greatly increased its elongation at break requiring a greater energy for fracture. The tear strength also was higher. The increased adhesion is attributed to the changed mechanical properties of the quenched polymer, particularly to its increased fracture energy. © 1981.
