Abstract

The current industrial practice is to pre-bake a polycarbonate substrate before adhesive lamination. Immediate post-mold lamination of an adhesive to an injection molded polycarbonate article produces a bonded part that passes the accelerated storage test just as in the prior pre-bake process. The samples were bubble free and did not delaminate when made via the pre-bake step or via immediate post-mold lamination.
