German term or phrase: anloesen / anloesbar
From a patent application for a hose:

Es ist nich moeglich, das Bauteil mit dem Anschlussstutzen durch ein oberflaechliches *Anloesen* der einander beruehrenden Flaechen zu verkleben, weil das EVA-Material des Stutzens wegen seiner Inertheit nicht chemisch *anloesbar* ist.
Marcus Malabad
English translation:.... by superficially dissolving ...
Explanation:
This is my suggestion:

It is not possible to glue the assembly part with the spigot by superficially dissolving the adjoining surfaces because the EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) material of the spigot can not be chemically dissolved due to its inertness.

I hope this helps.

bite


Explanation:
Anlösen (Klebstoffe) - bite
the ability of an adhesive to dissolve the uppermost portions of the adherends

Anlösen (Kunststoffe) - bite
solvent attack directly upon plastic
[Wittfoht]

This is supported by Routledge, Technical Dictionary:
anlösen vt
(FERTIG Plaste) - bite

Ernst lists
anlösen, ätzen (Oberflächen) / etch

but it seems to me that "bite" is the term you're looking for, especially in view of the explanation Wittfoht provides.
