Abstract

The present invention provides a method for forming an adhesion layer in contact with a first surface of a substrate and a surface of a layer having electrically conductive properties using electrophotographic imaging compound as a mask. The adhesion layer improves the lamination properties of the electrically conductive layer to the substrate. The improved lamination properties to facilitate and increase the reliability and quality of a resulting product having an electronic circuit formed in accordance with the present invention. The method disclosed herein is well suited for use with rigid polymeric substrates and flexible polymeric substrates.
