Project Aim
The Surface Analysis Laboratory
Interface interaction
MDI
In order to understand the
adhesion of PU on metal
substrates.
• Stainless steel
(316L)
• Iron
• Molybdenum
• Nickel
• Chromium
Isocyanate Reactivity
The Surface Analysis Laboratory
•  −  +   →  −  −  →  −  + 
•  −  +  −  →  −  −  −  − 
•  −  +  −  →  − 
Stainless steel surface is made of metal oxide, metal
hydroxide and adsorbed water.
 −  +  −  →  − 
This is our research imperative!

MDI/Fe: «carbidic» peak
MDI/Mo and MDI/Ni : no «carbidic» peak but
interaction between with nitrogen!!!
Conclusions
The Surface Analysis Laboratory
MDI/Steel and MDI/Fe interfaces:
• M-C interaction
Peak at 283.6 eV
• Formation of
Peak at 289.2 eV
MDI/Mo and MDI/Ni interfaces
• M-N interaction
