Access from EThOS:
Ink adhesion of a set of laboratory-prepared solvent-based inks on biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films was investigated using a combination of physical and chemical analytical techniques. Peel test, atomic force microscopy (ATM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and time of flight-secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SlMS) these all provided insight on the nature of the ink-polymer interactions in this study.
