Impact of Radio-frequency Atmospheric-pressure Plasma on Water Contact Angles of High-impact Polystyrene [PDF]

(Received January 1, 2018; Accepted April 23, 2018)

Keywords: atmospheric pressure plasmas, high impact polystyrene, contact angles

For some applications of plastic materials, such as polystyrene, an important role is played by the wettability of the material. One of the methods for modification material properties such as water contact angle is using non-thermal plasma. In this study, a radio-frequency atmospheric pressure plasma jet source has been applied to the surface modification of high impact polystyrene film. The measurements show a dependence between the change of the water contact angle and the operating parameters of a non-equilibrium plasma treatment, such as the composition of the working gas, the flow rate, the distance from the plasma zone, and the power of the discharge.
