Abstract

Polymer surfaces and interfaces have many technological applications. In the present article we review some recent experiments conducted on model systems with the aim of understanding the role played by surface-anchored polymer layers in adhesion and friction. We also discuss some of the related theoretical models. The key parameter for both situations is the degree of interdigitation between the surface layer and the bulk polymer system (an elastomer in the case of adhesion, a molten polymer in the case of friction). We analyze how this degree of interdigitation governs the optimum enhancement in the adhesion energy between the solid wall and an elastomer, and how it is at the origin of the various wall slip regimes observed experimentally.

Keywords
