When changes to the plastic blend unexpectedly caused the conformal coating protecting electronic components in an aircraft radio to lift, pretreatment with potential-free Openair-Plasma® proved the only possible solution to ensure the necessary long-term adhesion. Sophisticated pretreatment solutions for the avionics industry
Extreme adhesion, the highest seal integrity, and the best possible environmental protection – all this was required to build a new bonding system. Today, over 15,000 Openair-Plasma®-treated refrigerated trucks roll off the line annually at Europe’s largest trailer manufacturer. Structural Bonding
A leader in the adhesive and sealant industry, SIKA Deutschland has worked together with Plasmatreat in the last few years to develop a number of groundbreaking adhesive projects that have been brought to standard production maturity. Best results on critical substrate
Openair-Plasma® technology has proven to be the only practical surface treatment for bonding insulating panels in the manufacture of three liquefied natural gas supertankers. An area of 12,000 m² per tanker had to be treated, and achieving 100% seal integrity of the insulation was an absolute necessity. Large-scale surface treatment
Tampoprint AG was entrusted with the assignment of developing and building fully-automated pad printing for 5-color printing (screen illustration printing) on mint boxes, with an hourly output of 1800 units. A matter of precision
For the Golf IV, Volkswagen developed an additional bonded door seal to prevent wind noise. This self-adhesive seal made of EPDM rubber was also be fixed with spots of an MS adhesive at the ends. Primers out - Plasma in
Plasmatreat goes virtual and is present at the 2nd Virtual Battery Exhibition from VDMA battery manufacturing, which will take place online from April 27 to May 3. On its virtual booth the company will present highlights about its own developed and patented Openair-Plasma technology for surface treatment especially for battery manufacturing.
Comprehensive Process Control for Openair-Plasma Systems
Plasmatreat supports digitized manufacturing with its Plasma Control Unit (PCU) and makes numerous controls, regulation, and monitoring functions available to ensure consistently high surface-treatment quality and reproducibility.
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.
