Study on Surface Integrity of PTFE Finished by Ultra-Precision Cutting and Surface Performance

Abstract:

Article Preview

This study aims at clarifying the relationship between the surface integrity of PTFE finished by an ultra-precision diamond cutting and the adhesion strength of a metal thin film. As the first step of this study, the basic properties such as surface integrity in the diamond cutting of PTFE and the effect of the surface roughness on the textile water repellency are demonstrated in this report. The following remarks were found. The measured roughness of finished surface largely exceeded the theoretical roughness, while the cutting force was very small comparing with aluminum and the flow type chips were formed. The surface with a smaller roughness tended to repel water.
