Title: Method of applying flocculent to polyolefins and an associated flocculent-covered polyolefin structure

Abstract: A method of covering a polyolefin surface with flocculent includes applying a polyolefin-bondable adhesive to at least a portion of a polyolefin surface located on a structure. An epoxy bond material is then applied to the portion of the structure. Then, a flocculent is applied to the portion of the structure. The polyolefin-bondable adhesive and the epoxy bond material can be applied by submerging the portion of polyolefin surface into each. An apparatus includes a structure having a polyolefin surface selected from a group consisting of polyethylene and polypropylene. A layer polyolefin-bondable adhesive overlies and abuttingly contacts a portion of the polyolefin surface of the structure. A layer of epoxy bond material overlies and abuttingly contacts the layer of polyolefin-bondable adhesive. A flocculent overlies and abuttingly contacts the layer of epoxy bond material.
