EWI to Introduce New Plastic-metal Joining Method at SPE ANTEC

March 4, 2019

The need to be able to directly join polymers to metals is growing.  For example, in the drive to make batteries smaller, more energy efficient, longer lasting, and less expensive to manufacture, direct joining of polymers to metals offers many benefits.

Recently, EWI has investigated the use of a unique, commercially available, surface treatment method as a potential method of making direct joining feasible.

Miranda Marcus will be presenting a paper on this topic, Direct Joining of Polytetrafluoroethylene and Polyamide to Steel via use of Surface Treatment, at the Society of Plastic Engineering Annual Technical Conference (ANTEC) in Detroit on Marth 19th, at 4:30pm,

Email Miranda, mmarcus@ewi.org, if you’d like to set up a meeting with her during the conference.
