Interface tailoring for adhesion enhancement of diamond-like carbon thin films
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE SALAUSANNE, 2012-05)
We have explored the suitability and characteristics of interface tailoring as a tool for enhancing the adhesion of hydrogen-free diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin films to silicon substrates. DLC films were deposited on ...
Enhancing the versatility of alternate current biosusceptometry (ACB) through the synthesis of a dextrose-modified tracer and a magnetic muco-adhesive cellulose gel
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-03-01)
Alternate Current Biosusceptometry (ACB) is a promising bio-magnetic method, radiation free and easily performed used for gastric emptying exams. Due to development on its sensitivity level, interesting nature, noninvasiveness ...
Bond Strength Between Fiber Posts And Root Dentin Treated With Natural Cross-linkers
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INCNEW YORK, 2015)
Glass fiber reinforced polypropylene mechanical properties enhancement by adhesion improvement
Glass fibers (GF) are the reinforcement agent most used in polypropylene (PP) based composites, as they have good balance between properties and costs. However, their final properties are mainly determined by the strength ...
Implications of Surface and Bulk Properties of Abutment Implants and Their Degradation in the Health of Periodontal Tissue
(Mdpi Ag, 2013-12-01)
The aim of the current review was to investigate the implications of the surface and bulk properties of abutment implants and their degradation in relation to periodontal health. The success of dental implants is no longer ...
Thermal Annealing of Polyelectrolyte Multilayers: An Effective Approach for the Enhancement of Cell Adhesion
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2017-01)
Polyelectrolyte multilayers (PEMs) have many potential applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. However, the softness of biocompatible PEMs results in limited cell adhesion. A novel strategy for the ...
Control of cell adhesion and migration by podocalyxin. Implication of Rac1 and Cdc42
Podocalyxin (PODXL) is a type I membrane sialomucin, originally described in the epithelial cells (podocytes) of kidney glomeruli. PODXL is also found in extra-renal tissues and in certain aggressive tumors, but its precise ...
Surface modification of aluminium alloys by atmospheric pressure plasma treatments for enhancement of their adhesion properties
This work deals with surface modification of aluminium alloy AA7075 by two types of atmospheric pressure plasma: dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) and atmospheric pressure plasma jet (APPJ) with the purpose to enhance the ...
Adhesion as a tool for in-built nanotechnology design in cementitious materials
(KOREAN ASSOC CRYSTAL GROWTH, INC, 2010)
Confined water, such as those molecules in nanolayers of 2-3 nm in length, plays an important role in the adhesion of hydrophilic materials, mainly in cementitious ones. In this study, the effects of water containing ...
