Adhesion promoters: Some oleochemicals can promote the adhesion of polymers to various surfaces, e.g. stearic acid can increase the adhesion of polyolef ins to metals and to the surfaces of other polymers. Erucamide is effective in the lamination of cellophane to polyethylene films, and alumina‐modified iron stearate has been found effective in aiding the adhesion of polyethylene to steel surfaces. The effect of oleamide on the adhesion of polyethylene to aluminium and to nylon 6 has been studied. Stearic acid had an adhesion promoting role in polyethylene/aluminium laminated packaging film. Barium stearate can effect the adhesiveness of poly(vinyl chloride).
