Abstract:

PEEK (polyether etherketone) polymer, is increasingly used in many industrial applications as a replacement for metal components. In this investigation, attention is given to understand the chemical changes that have been introduced on the surface of PEEK, when surface of the PEEK is modified by low pressure plasma under RF (radio frequency) glow discharge. The contact angle measurements show that the contact angle decreases after the plasma treatment which results in the increase in surface energy. This paper also discusses the common surface characterisation technique like Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) analysis to determine the chemical changes that have been introduced on the surface.
