SURFACE ACTIVATION

Atmospheric pressure plasma technology improves the surface energy by adding in extreme surface (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 avoid any ESD phenomenon. This plasma technology also allows fast selective treatment, consistently with the shortest cycle times and selected coating zones.
