Plasma Talk:
Plasma activation – and how to measure it (past)

Date: September 22, 2020

Timeslots (CEST): 07:00 am, 10:00 am, 05:00 pm

Duration: 40 - 60 min

You haven't heard about surface activation by Openair-Plasma® for Bonding Processes? And if so, are you sure it is difficult to measure? Then you are in the right place in this Plasma Talk!

You cannot see it but measure: The surface free energy (SFE). What is that and why is it such an important indicator for adhesion?

In this free of charge Plasma Talk by Tanja Pawlenko you will understand, that surface is a sensitive topic and should be considered as early as possible in bonding processes. To get surer in verifying the conditions of a surface, SFE-measurement is a good indicator and state of the art in that field. Learn how to use it and which different ways for measuring are there.

After participating in the Plasma Talk you will know more about

  • Basic Plasma activation of a plastic surface
  • How to determine SFE and choose the right equipment for your own application
  • Ways to correlate between plasma treatment, surface free energy and adhesion

This free of charge Plasma Talk is aimed at employees in development and laboratories as well as users of plasma technology in industrial processes.

The PlasmaTalk will run for between 40 - 60 min including a question and answer session. If you have a specific problem or question then please send your question in advance of the webinar to so we can include it in the program.
