Many materials used in production processes do not have the necessary surface tension to collect the metered product, whether this be a sealant, an adhesive or a paint.
By activation of the plasma, a particularly effective modification of the surface properties is possible for non-polar materials like plastic, consisting of long polymer chains, but also metals, textiles, glass, recycled and composite materials.
With the activation of the plasma the surface energy is obtained in a selective manner, exactly where it is needed. The result is a decidedly better wettability of the surfaces.
Plasma processing improves:
- chemical affinity and inertia
- force of bonds
