Modern manufacturing materials including inert plastics often present problems for the adhesion of varnishes, paints and lacquers. Plasma Surface Treatment improves adhesion on material and improves the quality while making a paint process more sustainable.
Flame treatment is the traditional method of surface preparation for painting applications. Chemical or aqueous washes are also often used which use expensive consumables and consume energy.
Plasma surface treatment is an alternative to chemical or mechanical abrasion cleaning which reduces consumables and energy usage. The plasma treater generates a stream of ions compressed air and electricity and these ions clean and functionalise the surface.
This Green process improves paint adhesion on composite, metal and plastic components with less standard deviation improving process reliability and throughput.
Enercon’s Multiport has the capability to treat large surface areas making it ideal for many painting processes.
