Abstract

A Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition was chosen in order to deposit an organic thin film on polyethylene terephthalate monofilament to increase its adhesion with the rubber compound in a tire. The aim of the work is to find an alternative “green” method to the classical chemical dipping with Resorcinol Formaldehyde Latex: plasma treatments are environmentally friendly and easy to use. 2-isoprepenyl-2-oxazoline (2-iox) was employed as precursor and the treatments were performed in a vacuum system, both in a continuous regime and a pulsed regime. Initially, the coatings were deposited on polyethylene terephthalate sheets to study the wettability (by the measurement of contact angle) and the thickness (by profilometer) of the plasma polymer. The chemical characterization was investigated by Infrared and X-ray Photoelectron spectroscopies. Finally, the adhesion of the polyethylene terephthalate sheets was measured by Peel Test, using the coating as adhesive and as a pre-dip. The measurement of the peel force made it possible to optimize the plasma parameters that were applied on the monofilament. The adhesion was estimated by the measure of the extraction force and the evaluation of the coverage compared with those of the classical chemical treatment Resorcinol Formaldehyde Latex.
