Modification of Poly(Ethylene Terephthalate) Track Membrane Properties by Plasma Chemical Method
Properties of poly(ethylene terephthalate) track membrane (PET TM) exposed to an allyl alcohol radiofrequency plasma after pre-activation its surface in an oxygen plasma were studied. The influence of plasma treatment conditions on basic membrane characteristics, i.e. pore size and shape, wettability, and water permeability, was studied. It has been shown that the plasma treatment of membrane can significantly improve its performance characteristics.
