How Could Vacuum Plasma Treatment Benefit You?
Vacuum Plasma provides innovative surface modification technology and offers effective solutions to adhesion and wetting problems in many industries. Component preparation using plasma treatment is an important step prior to printing, bonding, painting, varnishing and coating processes. Plasma surface modification provides an economical solution for the cleaning and activation of part surfaces before further processing.
How Does Vacuum Plasma Treatment Help To Solve The Problems Of Adhesion?
To obtain good adhesion to low surface energy materials i.e. low or non-polar materials like PP, PE, HDPE, etc. we need to modify the surface i.e. increase its polarity. Placing your components in the highly active environment that exists inside a plasma chamber is the ideal method to increase the material's polarity. The free radicals and other particles that exist in the highly active plasma discharge can attach to the material surface resulting in the formation of additional polar groups on the material surface, these have a strong chemical attraction to inks, paint, coatings, adhesives, etc. leading to significantly enhanced surface energy and therefore adhesion.
