The proposals available facts do not agree with the dynamic wetting are that piperazine-derived polyamides give good specific adhesion by controlling the flow of the molten The other rheological factor is related to properties of polymer or by giving the adhesive a modulus similar to the solid adhesive rather than the molten adhesive. that of vinyl for minimizing stress localization. For these Researchers have observed that bonds are often stronger explanations to be valid, non-vinyl bonding polyamides if the modulus of the adhesive is similar to that of the substrate. The rationale is that less stress is concentrated The wetting starts as the molten adhesive is applied to at the interface if the adhesive and substrate are not the surface of the vinyl or as the adhesive film between highly different in modulus. A stiffer adhesive would two vinyl layers is melted by heating of the vinyl cause greater stress at its interface with the substrate as substrate. In wetting the substrate, it is important to fill the substrate is flexed, and the greater stress could the irregularities that occur on almost all surfaces [8]. A exceed the bond strength of the adhesive to the number of equations have been developed for filling the substrate. Since piperazine incorporation reduces the pores on the surface, but all of these contain both internal hydrogen bonding of polyamides compared to viscosity and surface tension parameters.

Thus, low stiffness of the polyamide neither viscosity nor surface tension properties are does not appear to play a major role in this specific different enough between vinyl- and non-vinyl-bonding polyamides to be a reasonable explanation for the difference in performance. A second stage of wetting occurs as the molten adhesive is cooling into a solid. Since the initial temperature of the adhesive is high for only a short Solubility parameters have found wide use since they time, there is insufficient time for the adhesive to flow explain the solubility of the polymers and oligomers in into all the pores as could be expected under equilibrium solvents, polymer miscibility, and wetting of substrates temperature conditions.

These parameters based polyamides have the same open time, i.e., the time measure cohesive energy density and therefore are an for the adhesive to become solid [7,10].

In this case, the greater open time of piperazine-derived polyamides solubility parameter model predicts that the lower allows better wetting of the vinyl prior to setting. polarity of piperazine-derived polyamides is closer to However, plastics are less sensitive to open time than are that of vinyl than is the polarity of non-piperazine- metals due to the lower rate of heat transfer in plastics derived polyamides, which results in good bond [ 11].
