Abstract: Interphases at the adhesion bonded interfaces between aluminum sheet and polypropylene(PP)/and PP blended with maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene(PP-g-MAH) were studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and a mechanism of coordination bonding at the interfaces was proposed. Compared to PP, for PP with addition of PP-g-MAH the spectra of Al 2p and O 1s at the surface of aluminum sheet shift to higher binding energy obviously, which indicates that chemical interaction between PP-g-MAH and surface of the aluminum sheet occurs, and as a result Al-O-C bond is formed. There is no chemical interaction between PP and surface of the aluminum sheet. The obvious improvement of the adhesion strength between aluminum sheet and PP with PP-g-MAH could be attributed to the formation of Al-O-C bonds.
