Paper Title:
A Comparison between Conventional Thermal Treatment and Excimer Laser Irradiation Performed on Alumina/PEEK Composite Coatings
  Abstract

Poly(etherether-ketone)-alumina coating were deposited by EPD. In order to densify the coatings, conventional thermal treatments were performed at a temperature equal or higher than the melting point of the polymer. The samples treated at the lower temperature showed an increase in the quality of crystallinity of the polymer. As an alternative method, an excimer laser was used to treat the surface of the composite coatings. The laser beam irradiation did not induce any modification in the crystalline structure of the polymer and at the same time did not produce strong degradation of the polymer molecule, also when the laser beam fluence was higher than the ablation limit. The most relevant modification induced by both the treatments was a change in the morphology and the porosity.
