Adhesion between Polydimethylsiloxane Layers by Crosslinking

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Adhesion between two surfaces may be strongly improved by chemical crosslinking of the interfaces. Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is a widely used polymer that has received considerable attention due to its unique properties, such as relatively low price, biocompatibility, flexibility, high thermal stability, and outstanding dielectric properties. The excellent performances
of PDMS elastomers enable the realization of pneumatic, electromagnetic, and thermal actuators. In this work, two-layered PDMS films were adhered together by different mixtures of crosslinkers. The double-layered films were investigated by rheology and microscopy. The objective of this work was to create adhesion of two layers without destroying the original viscoelastic properties of the PDMS films.
