Openair® Plasma pretreatment is an environmentally responsible alternative to conventional sand or aluminum oxide blasting or hydrofluoric acid treatment. Thanks to the micro-fine surface pretreatment with plasma, the adhesion capacity of the glass surface can be precisely increased. This ensures that the powder applied during the satinizing process reliably bonds during subsequent firing.
The Openair® process is integrated inline in the satinizing equipment. This shortens the entire process and reduces the technology required. And that makes the plasma process more interesting from a cost perspective as well.
