A thin poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) layer has been found to control adhesive forces between poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) and a glass substrate. Various PVAs were coated on glass substrates on top of which PDMS pre-polymer was cast. After thermal curing, the peel strength was tested. It was found that the fundamental adhesive forces are attributed to the degree of hydrolysis (or saponification value) of the PVAs. For a PVA modified with a silanol group, strong adhesive force resulted. The range of tailoring the force with the PVAs was 16 kgf/m. The production of thin interlaminated PVA layers as primers was demonstrated. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl. Polym. Sci., 2014, 131, 39927.
