I will say it has meaning error , rather than any idiom error.

Here, bonding is affected over a surface, hence comparison should be using some form of on.
In other words, parallel structure should same form of word.

A. over a surface is not parallel with a series of
B. again same error as A
C. same error.
D. over is parallel with at, hence right.
E. wrong contrast, changes meaning

Instead of, as opposed to , in contrast with , these all idioms, their X n Y should be parallel

"hence the bonding" is an appositive modifier of the contact since the bonding or adhesion is the effect of the contact. "hence" makes this point clear and we should take them as one unit rather than as two different phenomena.
