NOVELTY – The PET packages PECVD thin film adhesion enhancement comprises oxygen plasma processing of the packages prior to application of the polyethylene film, in order to incorproate functional groups and also increase surface roughness. Also claimed is the product of the procss. CLAIMED PRODUCT – The product acquires a carbon film via the hydrogenated amorphous carbon plasma generated by acetylene and argon gases. USE – In polymer processing.
