A problem with the adhesion of liquid silicone rubber to polycarbonate would almost have resulted in failing to undertake production of an auto part. Thanks to the prompt introduction of Openair® Plasma, on-time production was once again a possibility. CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY (10/2011) reports.
Atmospheric plasma technology has already proven itself many times as an environmentally friendly alternative to wet chemical cleaning and pre-treatment. JOT, Germany's leading magazine for surface technology, reports in a special edition.
Through the use of Openair® plasma, a plastic finisher managed to coat the design product of an automotive manufacturer with a high-gloss hardcoat paint in a durable and impact-resistant manner. The German plastics journal KUNSTSTOFFE (10/2011) covers the process.
A problem with the adhesion of LSR to PC in the injection molding process would have almost led to a breakdown in production. The German journal ADHÄSION (10/2011) reports about the successful outcome through the use of Openair® plasma.
In the production of instrument panels for the Audi Q5, Openair® plasma not only substitutes the conventional flaming process but also eliminates any masking before foam filling. The German plastics journal PLASTVERARBEITER (10/2011) reports on the process.
The new plasma coating PT-Release displaces chemical release agents or durable coatings in injection molding and regenerates inside the mold. The US magazine MoldMaking Technology reports on this process.
Plasmatreat has developed the world's first system allowing plasma pretreatment of large lightweight-panels for subsequent flat lamination or coating processes in a continuous, inline production line. IPCM (International Paint and Coating Magazine, 9/2011) covers the process.
PT-Release – world’s first plasma release coating for injection molding tools
Plasmatreat’s new release coating technology PT-Release allows the solvent-free in-mold application as well as the fully automatically regeneration of the release coating inside the injection molding machine. US-TECH (7/2011) carries the report.
Press Release: Plasmatreat Academy - A Dialog between Industry and Science
Plasma moves into the center for professional know-how transfer.
As the innovation leader in plasma-based surface treatment Plasmatreat has been sharing its know-how with the industry for 25 years. The newly founded „Plasmatreat Academy” now combines a wide array of educational programs under one roof and with one common goal: facilitating an in-depth dialog with customers, suppliers, science and research.
Activation of Plastics by Openair-Plasma® (2) - Expansion of the application range for various plastics
The treatment with Openair-Plasma® brings about a targeted, site-selective change in surface properties. In industrial applications, this improves adhesion and normally incompatible polymers can be reliably bonded. Dr. Alexander Knospe demonstrates the possibilities of plasma treatment in the plastics industry and provides insights into the function and advantages of this technology
