The automotive industry can’t get by without it: Openair® Plasma treatment

The automotive industry relies on robust, finely tuned processes. These are a basic precondition for achieving consistently high quality. At the same time, durable adhesive bonds and the use of advanced materials are major production parameters when manufacturing parts with complex shapes. Openair® Plasma treatment meets the tough requirements of the automotive industry like no other pretreatment technology and is therefore firmly established in a variety of production processes at leading manufacturers.
