A process recipe for bonding a silicone membrane to a plastic substrate
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
A spin-cast silicone membrane has been successfully bonded between two injection-molded microstructured plastic discs. This sandwich structure creates a useful platform for mass production of microfluidic systems, provided that the bonds are leakproof. The bonds were achieved by a silicon dioxide coating deposited on the plastic discs by evaporation. This investigation is concerned with the process and the result only, no theory is discussed.
