How Auto Manufacturers Use Plasma & Flame to Improve Surface Energy

Enercon helps leading automotive manufacturers reduce cost, enable light weighting, & improve surface adhesion with atmospheric plasma & flame surface treatment. Treating surfaces prior to gluing, painting, coating and printing increases surface energy and promotes superior bonding.

Plasma & flame treatment are effective on glass, metals, composites and polymer materials such as PE, PP, TPO, POM, PUR, ABS, ASA, PA, Nylon, PC, PET and PTFE.

Flame treating is useful for automotive applications where large areas will be treated prior to painting, decorating or adhesive bonding. Plastic bumpers, dashboards, consoles, and glove boxes are very receptive to treatment.

Plasma treaters are used to increase the bond strength of adhesives used in head lamp assemblies, structural adhesives of body parts such as spoilers, & to aid in the production & performance of gaskets, seals, mirrors, filters, & more.

Treatment systems integrate on existing lines & as part of highly efficient robotic work cells. As a green technology treatment can lead to the elimination of hazardous chemical primers and solvents.
