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.
The renowned US scientists Dr. Kash Mittal and Dr. Robert H. Lacombe devote the technical editorial for their latest MST (Material, Science and Technology) newsletter to the atmospheric plasma treatment technology.
The American electronics magazine US-TECH reports in its September 2010 issue on how the Openair® plasma treatment process is used in the electronics industry to process parts and circuits during production and/or assembly.
A new rotary plasma technique from Plasmatreat allows for the first time to pretreat large-area lightweight composite panels at high speed in a continuous process. Germany’s bonding journal ADHÄSION (8/2010) describes the new process.
Atmospheric pressure plasma displaces the use of chemicals in the precleaning of aluminium coils. The International Painting and Coating Magazine IPCM reports in its July/August 2010 issue about the revolutionary process.
Furniture construction: Plasma brings the zero-joint
From this year on, the furniture industry supplier Niemann relies on Openair® plasma for edge bonding and thus creates the zero-joint. The furniture trade journal DDS-Möbel und Ausbau (5/2010) reports about this new development in a lead story.
The PlasmaPlus® technology allows the nanocoating of aluminium for the first time under normal pressure. The process ensures an excellent corrosion protection. MFN (Metal Finishing News) describes the new technique.
Corrosion protection – plasma integration made easy
TRW Automotive development engineer Bertram Schwanitz reports about his experience with the subsequent integration of a PlasmaPlus® coating system in an interview with the editor of the reference book JOT-BRANCHENINDEX 2010.
The sensor manufacturer Novotechnik (Siedle Group) has successfully used Openair® plasma for some years now. The throughput has tripled thanks to this system. Adhesion problems have been reduced to zero. The journal for surface technology JOT (4/2010) gives a 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
