Reliable protection of electronic components: sealing of plastic and aluminum housings

Engine control devices, anti-lock braking systems and on-board electronics are installed in the engine compartment and therefore constantly exposed to high temperature fluctuations and moisture. To protect the sensitive electronics, the printed circuit boards are encased in water- and dustproof housings. The sealing surfaces of these housings must be absolutely clean and free of grease and oil to ensure an impermeable seal.

Plasma treatment secures the sealing of engine control housings
Plasma treatment of aluminium housing

Openair® Plasma enables automated and highly efficient cleaning and pretreatment of these surfaces prior to application of the sealing compounds and helps to achieve a high level of process reliability (plasma activation).

Plasmatreat has been approved as a plasma technology supplier by nearly all major manufacturers of engine electronics. Mature technology and worldwide service ensure trouble-free production processes.
