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.
Composite materials: Bonding lightweight panels in a better way
Recycled plastic materials and WPC tend to have difficult-to-bond surfaces. An Openair® process for pretreating large surface panels now allows for low-cost production. LIGHTWEIGHTDESIGN (3/11) gives the details.
The sensor manufacturer Novotechnik regards the change from the low-pressure plasma chamber to the use of the integrated Openair® technology as a milestone in the development of the company’s sensor production. The technical journal SENSOR-MAGAZIN (3/11) covers the story.
Corrosion protection - Nanometer thick coatings in series production
Higher requirements on the corrosion resistance of e.g. bonded metallic components demand for innovative solutions. The German journal ADHÄSION (adhesion) reports in its issue 3/2011 on the strong effects of PlasmaPlus® coatings.
