Genius®, Selective Surface Activation

 

What is Genius® Selective Surface Activation?

Our proprietary Selective Surface Activation technology consists in selecting the surfaces to be activated through the intuitive programming of the Genius machine in order to automatically bring the embedded atmospheric pressure plasma system in the surface to be activated, with the adequate parameters ensuring that a sufficient activation rate will be achieved, consistent with a very short cycle time.

Why use atmospheric pressure plasma?

Atmospheric pressure plasma technology improves the surface energy by adding in extreme surface (a few nanometers) an important quantity of polar chemical functions. These polar functions generate numerous Van Der Waals interactions with the activated material, to improve its wettability and increase the adhesion of the coating. The atmospheric pressure plasma implemented is blown; thus it allows to add in extreme surface chemical functions that are electrically neutral, which avoids any ESD phenomenon. This plasma technology also allows fast selective treatment, consistent with the shortest cycle times and selected coating zones.

Maximize wettability and adhesion

3D self-programmable and robust, Genius technology is meant to leverage the quality and ROI of your coating lines.
The potential range of applications for this innovative technology is large and its efficiency already proven on high-end applications in the Aerospace and Automotive sectors.
