Research group

Surface treatment of materials

The subject of research and development of the group is studying surfaces of polymer materials, their preparation and properties control by physical and chemical activation, especially modification by plasma treatment. The group focuses on the study and utilization of relationship between substrate, deposited layer and process parameters of deposition or activation, problems of adhesion, preparation and research of thin films from polymer materials and self-supporting foils for various applications. The group also investigates the barrier properties of the films and contributes significantly to the research and development of processing of polymer materials wherever the surface is considered to be a significant factor delivering a special function. The resulting surface modification may be applied both on the final product and also during the processing. Therefore, the group focuses specifically on technologies that may be easily implemented in-line in the production process, and also in the conditions of open atmosphere
An integral part of the work is also general research of plasma deposition and plasma interaction with the material. The results may be then used for plasma surface treatments, which involve development of experimental methodology and also construction of original laboratory equipment.

Head of the group: doc. Mgr. Aleš Mráček, Ph.D.
