MAY 25-26, 2000



This symposium is the follow on to the first one which was held under the auspices of the Electrochemical Society in Minneapolis, MN, 1981 and will cover the progress and breakthroughs which have occurred in the interim. Polymeric coatings are used for a number of purposes, e.g., decorative, protective, functional (as dielectrics or insulators). Additionally, a special application of polymeric (organic) coatings is their use as lithographic materials for making integrated circuit elements. Irrespective of the purpose of the coating it must adhere well to the underlying substrate. The primary purpose of this Symposium is to bring out the various material/process parameters which influence the adhesion of polymeric coatings with a primary thrust on polymeric coatings which are organic in nature. All kinds of polymeric coatings (including primers and paints) irrespective of thickness (thin, thick, or bulk) and method of deposition (plasma, solution, vapor,... etc.) on a variety of substrates (metals, oxides, glass, polymers) are considered.
