“On the ball”: Rotary plasma ensures adhesion in UV digital printing
Printer manufacturer HEIDELBERG benefited from using rotary plasma beams to develop a world first. Round and free-form objects are pretreated with Openair® plasma in the UV inkjet digital printer before being individually printed. KUNSTSTOFFE INTERNATIONAL (07/2017) carries an in-depth report on the new application.
Cover story "Plastic and metal: a strong connection"
An innovative coating process by the name of Plasma-SealTight® offers a worldwide applicable pioneering solution for improving plastic-to-metal bonds in the injection molding industry. In its June issue the digital magazine PLASTIX-WORLD (2017/06) provides you with all the details.
An innovative plasma sealing technology combined with application-specific thermoplastic compounds now makes it possible to achieve particularly strong, media-tight joints between hybrid injection molding components. The Swiss journal OBERFLÄCHEN / POLYSURFACES (Nr.2(5)/2017) has the report.
For lighting manufacturer Herbert Waldmann, the new pretreatment with atmospheric pressure plasma means surface-mounted LED machine lights with tighter seals and plenty more besides. Specialist lighting magazine HIGHLIGHT reports on the benefits in its special issue "Technology" (No.1 (5)/2017).
"The ability to manufacture products with selectively functional surfaces opens up a completely new dimension in innovation capability, the scope of which we can only begin to imagine at this stage", say plasma experts Christian Buske (Plasmatreat) and Dr. Jörg Ihde (Fraunhofer IFAM) in an interview with ALUMINIUM PRAXIS (5/2017).
Cover story: Hybrid technology – Adhesion as a benchmark
A new environmentally-safe systems solution based on atmospheric plasma coating not only promises a particularly strong, media-tight plastic-to-metal bond in the injection molding process, but also a very cost-effective solution. IST ((International Surface Technology No.1 /2017) has all the details.
Hybrid technology: New plasma sealing technology ensures hybrid bonds in the injection molding process
If corrosive media cross the plastic/metal interface and penetrate the injection-molded part, they can cause damage and even delamination. Plasma-SealTight® is a pioneering technology for creating long-time stable hybrid bonds. WERKSTOFFE IN DER FERTIGUNG ("Materials in production", No. 1/2017) reports on this new process.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow – CEO Christian Buske in an interview with the journal DICHT!
What were the milestones in the last 10 years? Where do we stand today and which trends must companies respond to? For their anniversary edition (No. 4/2016), the technical journal DICHT! asked CEO Christian Buske for his statement on 'surface treatment'.

A new environmentally-safe systems solution based on atmospheric plasma coating not only promises a particularly strong, media-tight plastic-to-metal bond in the injection molding process, but also a very cost-effective solution. JOT, the Journal for Surface Technology, (12/2016) has all the details.
Skyscraping adhesion – plasma technology ensures airborne radio electronics
The South German company Rohde & Schwarz – a global market leader in wireless communication systems – uses Openair® plasma to ensure that the protective coating applied to airborne radio SMDs adheres reliably without damaging the highly sensitive electronics. The trade journal DICHT! ('Sealed!' No. 4 /2016) contains a detailed report.
The next face to face trade show leads Plasmatreat Shanghai to Chinaplas 2021 in Shenzhen. The exhibition with the special topics plastics and rubber will take place from April 13 to 16. Plasmatreat Shanghai will show exciting and new highlights about its Openair-Plasma technology for surface treatment.
Plasma Instead of Chemicals – Using Openair-Plasma to reduce VOC Emissions
VOCs occur when solvents and solvent-containing products are used, and they are harmful to the environment. Nevertheless, manufacturing in many industries still involves pre-treating surfaces with primers, bonding agents or other chemicals that release VOCs. With its Openair-Plasma process, Plasmatreat offers an environmentally friendly alternative.
