High Performance Treatment Meets Sophisticated Monitoring and Control

Release date: 12/8/2008

MENOMONEE FALLS,WI- Enercon's new Dyne-A-Mite™ IT Elite etches, cleans, activates, sterilizes and functionalizes a wide variety of difficult to treat conductive and non conductive material surfaces. Its advanced blown-ion plasma surface treatment is ideal for promoting adhesion for painting, bonding, casting, flocking, labeling, coating, marking, extruding and overmolding applications. Quality control is self regulated by a real time Plasma Integrity Monitoring system for all process variables. The new modular system is upgradable with up to four surface treatment heads with quick connect/disconnect capability. A touch screen interface provides local control and connectivity to network control systems is also available.

Its ability to treat flat surfaces as well as difficult to reach recesses makes this simple to use system a safe treatment solution for a wide variety of applications.

The Dyne-A-Mite IT™ Elite generates a concentrated blown-ion discharge that bombards a material surface with a high-speed discharge of ions. Positive ion bombardment facilitates a micro-etching or scrubbing (ablation) effect which can remove) organic and inorganic contaminants from the surface of an object. Without changing the substrate morphology, the system successfully changes the mechanical and chemical properties of a surface. It cleans surfaces and initiates cross-linking effects. Blown-ion treatment allows for easier application and improved adhesion of coatings, adhesives, inks, labels and markings of all types. In-line treatment eliminates the need for costly chemical priming, etching and vacuum processes.

The Dyne-A-Mite IT™ Elite is highly effective at treating and cleaning all types of polymers, elastomers, glass and even conductive surfaces. It treats extruded, pultruded, molded and formed materials. Treatment is ideal for PE, PP, PET, nylon, vinyl, polystyrene, polycarbonate, PVC and all other types of thermoformed and thermoset plastics. Typical applications include removing grease, oil, oxides or silicone; pre-treatment and preparation for bonding, soldering or gluing and pre-treatment for finishing metals.
