Abstract

Polyamide (PA) 6 was modified by diffuse coplanar surface barrier discharge (DCSBD) plasma in an atmosphere of nitrogen and oxygen. The surface roughness decrease of PA 6 was detected by AFM and nano-indentation after modification in DCSBD plasma. A significant increase in O/C and N/C ratios of plasma-modified PA 6 using XPS analysis was found. The results show the importance of introducing oxygenic polar functional groups on the polymeric surface in order to increase its surface energy during a short time of plasma activation. The modification of PA 6 by DCSBD oxygen plasma was more efficient than by nitrogen plasma.
