Plasma Surface Treatment

Dec 12th, 2008 | By | Category: Did you know?

If you’ve ever watched ink rub off a printed surface, witnessed the failure of an adhesive to hold two surfaces together, or observed inconsistency in the application of a coating then you’ve seen evidence of low surface energy at work. Low surface energy can be inherent in a surface or the surface can have contaminants that prevent the surface from successful bonding with an ink or adhesive.

There are numerous techniques for improving and preparing a surface for improved functionality. Mechanical, liquid, and chemical methods may be used, however in-line atmospheric plasma surface treating technologies provide economical cleaning, activating and functionalizing of surfaces. This website is devoted to covering the latest information on plasma treatment technologies and specific applications for improving adhesion.
