Silicone substrates are most often bonded by the use of silicone adhesives. Adhesion can be enhanced by roughening or cleaning the parts to be bonded and through the use of silicone primers. A newly developed approach that allows for bonding of silicone substrates with non-silicone type adhesives, such as epoxies, involves the pretreatment of silicone substrates with gas plasma.
