Plasma pre-treatment for the coil coating process.
NanoCraft, an independent research service provider, tested, on behalf
of customers, the systems developed by Plasmatreat. The goals were to
proof the applicability of “Openair” plasma in the series production,
as well as its efficacy in pre-treating, which means cleaning and
activating, of surfaces to be coated.
In the tests, the conventional chemical pre-treatment was used as
reference system. In consideration of the material-plasma parameters to
be optimized (plasma-focus, intensity/energy input), the qualitative
equivalence with the conventional pre-treatment could be shown. The
results obtained did not only prove the applicability and efficacy of
atmospheric pressure plasma, the plasma pre-treatment achieved rather
distinctly better results in many fields than the chemical reference.
Herewith the advantages were obvious for our customers: a multitude of
chemical treatment-steps can be replaced by a single efficient,
environmentally friendly, and therewith cheaper, process.
