When treated with PlastiLynx, low-surface-energy polymers such as polyethylene and polypropylene can be successfully bonded with commercial adhesives.

Plastics Today, July 13, 2022 – Specialty chemicals company XlynX Materials Inc. has introduced a surface-activating primer designed specifically for use with low-surface-energy polymers, such as polyethylene and polypropylene. The PlastiLynx primer and sizing agent is based on XlynX’s diazirine-based crosslinking technology that enables the formation of strong covalent bonds with unreactive polymer substrates, including films, solids, and fibers.
