Abstract

The paper discusses the surface graft copolymerization of acrylamide onto polyethylene and polypropylene by microwave plasma treatment and low dose nitrogen ion implantation. These two techniques could activate the polyolefins surface and increase the wettability. Among these, the polyolefins with chemically-inerted plasma treatment contributed the most to increase the wettability.
