Plasma surface treatment increases the surface energy of the substrate so that the applied substance can spread increasing its ability to coat or bond better.
It offers a highly targetable and precise form of surface treatment that integrates into manufacturing operations to provide assembly, printing and decorating advantages by increasing adhesion strength and product quality – increasing output and reducing reject rate.
Plasma surface treatment effectively treats extruded, pultruded, moulded and formed materials. Treatment is ideal for PE, PP, PET, nylon, vinyl, polystyrene, polycarbonate, PVC and all other types of thermoformed and thermoset plastics. Plasma surface treaters can also be used on metals and foils to clean and promote adhesion.
