Abstract

This disclosure relates to laminated articles and more particularly, to improved adhesion of f luoropolymer films (especially films of copolymers of perfluoroalkyl perfluorovinyl ether and tetrafluoroethylene) to metal substrates. Improved adhesion of polymer layers is desirable in the manufacture of fuser members coated with copolymers of perfluoroalkyl perf luorovinyl ether and tetrafluoroethylene. The method of the present disclosure relates to the bonding of sleeves of the f luoropolymers, powder-coated f luoropolymers or f luoropolymers coated upon metal substrates by any other technique.
