The Automotive Industry has always been searching for ways to improve fuel efficiency and performance by moving towards the use of lightweight materials. Carbon fibre components have replaced metals in many instances and adhesive bonding has become one of the major methods of joining materials.

Some lightweight materials such as PP, PE and EPDM require surface treatment to achieve high performance and reliable adhesive joints. In-line plasma treatment can remove the need for chemical cleaners and primers.

Enercon’s Blown Ion Multiport allows for large surface area bonding and painting for interior and exterior components and is a viable alternative to flame treatment. Whereas Enercon’s Blown-Ion™ plasma surface treater is ideal for the narrow grooves of headlight components.
