Title: HIGH STRENGTH POLYMER METAL COMPOSITES AND METHODS OF MAKING THEREOF
Abstract:
The present invention provides polymer-metal composites free of adhesives and methods of making same. In particular, the present invention takes advantage of a unique metallic bonding surface created by exposure to a laser whereby micron-sized fragments are fixed to the metallic bonding surface such that, a high strength bond with polymeric material is created upon exposure to a second laser.
