Allyl methacrylate deposited using atmospheric dielectric barrier discharge plasma. Infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy show that both allyl and vinyl moieties are polymerised during deposition. This suggests a formation of a crosslinked organic film that can be used as intermediate between aluminium and polyester topcoat. Pull-off tests show a promising adhesion performance.
