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.
The usual masking process before foam filling is particularly labor-intensive in instrument panel construction. The journal "Special K 2010" describes how the supplier to Audi, Peguform, completely does without masking.
Environmental protection is a key issue to transport companies. Over 15 000 new refrigerated semi-trailers are produced by Europe's largest trailer manufacturer Schmitz Cargobull each year. The eco-friendly truck production involves the use of Openair® plasma. The German plastics magazine PLASTVERARBEITER (10/2010) gives the details.
Plastics: Plasma solves even complex adhesion problems
In its annual edition 2010, the magazine KUNSTSTOFFVERARBEITUNG (Plastics Processing) reports about how the atmospheric Openair@ plasma technology frequently proves to be a true crisis manager when it comes to problematic bondings of plastic materials.
