Plasma surface treatment micro-etches and functionalises a surface, removing surface contamination and creating bonding sites to improve adhesive performance for both structural and non-structural applications.
Surface treaters are used with a wide variety of adhesives and sealants including pressure sensitive adhesives, spray adhesives, cold glue, thermosetting hot-melt, and curable adhesive formulations, such as Epoxy, Acrylic, Methyl Methacrylate Bonding (MMA), Polyurethane (PU), Cyanoacrylate (Instant Adhesives) and Silicones.
This in-line surface modification technology is a Green process that improves adhesion capability and bond strength and improves product quality. It increases manufacturing efficiencies, eliminates hazardous pre-treatment cleaners primers and abrasion surface preparation methods such as grit blasting, shot blasting or manual sanding/abrasion.
Plasma Surface Treatment can be easily automated, eliminating process variability and ensuring repeatable results.
