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.

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.
Strong bond and media-tight: Turnkey plasma unit for injection molding
Automation of the new Plasma-SealTight® sealing process has resulted in a turnkey plasma unit constructed by Plasmatreat, which can be adapted to suit any conventional injection molding machine. The Swiss magazine POLYSURFACES (No. 5/2016) presents the new system.
When the foil fails to stick - Plasma as troubleshooter in touch foil bonding
Bubbles forming in the boundary layer is a dreaded yet familiar phenomenon in foil adhesion: The adhesive bond, despite initially appearing to bond reliably, failed the climatic test at an automotive component supplier. The technical journal DICHT ("Tight", No. 3/2016) has the case study.
