Plasma Activation

This special process of industrial plasma surface technology is ideal above all for optimizing printability, paintability, glueability and dyeability. Plastic parts, natural products and fibers from almost all departments of the plastics processing industry can be optimized by the process.

Functional groups are added to or created on the surfaces to influence adhesion. By changing process parameters, both hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces can be produced.

Here is a parameter window showing typical operating conditions. Processes at higher pressure, under different temperatures and with shorter treatment time are possible:
Pressure: 0.1 to 100 Pa
Temperature: 20 to 40 degrees Celsius
Treatment time: in minutes
Plasma excitation: Alternating current in medium frequency (Khz), high frequency (Mhz) or by microwaves (GHz).
