Traditionally, the demands on design, quality and cost efficiency are very high for glass and ceramic products. The product range couldn’t be more extensive – from street lights over cell phone displays to decorative indoor glass. But usually, they need to be bonded, printed or coated. Most likely they will also be combined with other materials. Do you face any of these challenges?

Then there are many ways where Openair-Plasma® can help you optimize your process. With this technology you can pretreat your product, prepare and protect it against external influences. Generally, the first step is to clean the surface with Openair-Plasma® to remove e.g. contaminations.

If cleaning alone is not enough, the substrate can be coated with PlasmaPlus® technology which adds a special nano layer on the surface providing new functionalities. By applying this, stable bonding and printing results can be achieved – without using primers! Openair-Plasma® can be a game changer and enables completely new ways of production.

In this free of charge PlasmaTalk Peter Langhof, Technical Sales, will explain how Openair-Plasma® works, and what the plasma does to the substrate, focusing on glass and ceramic applications. You will be able to evaluate how plasma optimizes your production process and how it helps you manufacture a durable as well as high-quality product.

After participating in this PlasmaTalk you will know more about:

  •     Micro-fine plasma cleaning to remove clinging organic particles and impurities
  •     Use of innovative coating processes possible with plasma coating and alternative color systems (UV coatings, solvent-free coatings)
  •     Reduce scrap rate (error rate)
  •     Easy to integrate plasma jets in e.g. flatbed and spindle coating systems

The PlasmaTalk will run for appr. 40 - 60 min. including FAQs. If you have a specific problem or question, please send it in advance to and we will be happy to include it into the program.
