Mohamed Naceur BELGACEM


Comprendre la chimie et la physico-chimie des surfaces et établir la nature des forces qui gouvernent l'adhésion. Les moyens d'augmenter ces forces sont également discutés.

Models of adhesion.
Surface energy determination (for liquids & solids).
Approches of calculation the surface energy of solids.
Surface treatment:

  • Washing and extraction of surfaces.
  • Mechanical treatment
  • Corona & plasma treatments
  • Flamme treatment
  • Chemical treatment (grafting)

To get the basic knowledge on surface phenomena (from energetical point of view) and surface treatments.
