To learn how to select the most suitable adhesive for use on a given metal surface, scale models of molecules of high polymers and metal surfaces were prepared and fitted together, and the adhesive force was calculated for various combinations. The geometric arrangement of adhesive molecules on metal surfaces has a strong effect on the adhesive force between the two. Calculated adhesive forces based on the maximum number of interactions are much greater than experimental values.
