Abstract
A NOVEL PROCESS AND FORMULATION ARE PROPOSED FOR PRETREATMENT OF PLASTIC SURFACES. THE FORMULATIONS ARE INEXPENSIVE NONTOXIC AND NONPOLLUTING. WHEN PLASTIC PARTS ARE IMMERSED IN THE FORMULATIONS, THE SURFACES OF PLASTICS WILL BECOME RECEPTIVE TO WATERBORNE PAINTS. THE ADHESION OFWATERBORNE PAINTS IS EXPECTED TO BE BETTER THAN THAT OBTAINED WITH SOLVENTBORNE PAINTS. MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF SOLVENTBORNE PAINTS ARE USED TO COAT PLASTIC PARTS USED IN AUTOMOTIVE, BUSINESS MACHINE AND OTHER INDUSTRIES. THE PROPOSED PROCESS WILL ELIMINATE THE VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS EMITTED BY THE SOLVENTBORNE PAINTS.
