Resum: Two ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers (12 and 20 wt% of vinyl acetate,VA, content) have been treated with low pressure RF plasmas from non-oxidizing gases (Ar, N2) and oxidizing gases (air, a mixture of 4N2: 6O2 (v/v), O2 and CO2). The formation of polar moieties on both EVAs was more noticeable by treatment with plasmas from non-oxidizing gases than from oxidizing ones (the higher the reactivity, the lower the difference with respect to untreated EVA surfaces). The surface etching with the non-oxidizing plasmas, giving rise to a high roughness, depends on the wt% of VA in the composition of the copolymer because of the different resistances of VA (low) and PE (high) to the non-oxidizingplasma particles bombardment. The adhesion properties obtained using a polyurethane adhesive (PU) showed high T-peel strength values and adhesion failure in EVAs treated with plasmas from oxidizing gases, due to roughness produced causing mechanical interlocking of the adhesive. Lower T-peel strength values were obtained with non-oxidizingplasmas: the values for EVA12 being, in general, lower than those obtained for EVA20. The durability of the treated EVAs/PU adhesive joints after ageing in humidity and temperature was quite good.
