APPLICATION OF FTIR SPECTROSCOPY AND XPS TO POLYMER/MINERAL JOINT SYSTEMS

A major concern in the development of advanced composite materials technology is the problem of composite reliability. Polymer/mineral joints find practical applications in various areas as in protective coatings, structural composites or impregnations, and in order to ensure long-life durability of a polymer/mineral joint various technological tests are carried out.
