The key problem in designing polymeric composites is ensuring a sufficiently strong adhesive bond between the polymer and the filler (or the reinforcement). One method for strengthening the intermolecular interaction at the phase interface is electrophysical activation of the particle surface. We have investigated the absorption activity and adhesiveness of powdered inorganic fillers and polymeric binders with triboelectric activation and activation in a corona discharge. We consider a broad class of disperse materials. We show that electrophysical activation of powdered materials causes changes in the concentration of donor and acceptor centers on the particle surface and in the adsorption activity of the materials as a whole. The presented results can be used for goal-directed selection of the most effective method of activation for disperse materials; they also are evidence for the important role of adsorption forces in the adhesion phenomenon.
