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.
One of the leading experts in the area of plastics fascias surface refinement was looking for a reproducible, high-quality and fully automated pretreatment technique for its new coating line. The solution was found at Plasmatreat. The international journal IPCM (2/2011) reports.
A problem with the adhesion of LSR to PP would have almost led to a breakdown in the production of rain/light sensors for the automotive industry. The German technical magazine KUNSTSTOFFE (10/2010) reports how manufacture was still made possible by the immediate action of Plasmatreat.
New Research and Testing Equipment for Highly Technical Surface Treatment
Plasmatreat constantly faces shifting demands as a result of new ideas, regulations, and standards. Customers are increasingly approaching the company with unique and innovative project requests. Consequently, the capacities of the technology and research center will now be expanded to include a class-6 cleanroom.
