Paint touch-ups with Openair® Plasma – perfect adhesion to the original clearcoat

Paint systems for autobodies consist of several layers: e-coat, primer, basecoats and clearcoat. Painting defects and particle inclusions require work-intensive touch-up procedures (masking, sanding, repainting).
Since the original clearcoat (topcoat) has a low surface tension, getting new coats to adhere to it is only possible with the help of pretreatment.

Selective plasma pretreatment is an economical and efficient alternative to retreating the entire car body. The Openair® process from Plasmatreat can be used for localized touch-ups and as a pretreatment prior to painting the complete autobody. Low-pressure chambers are not required with Openair® Plasma.
