What Plasma Actually Does to a Surface to Improve Adhesion

Air plasma surface treating is an emerging green technology for leading manufacturers tasked with assembling and decorating plastics, composites, glass and metals. It is a powerful, yet relatively inexpensive technology that is used by both Fortune 100 companies and small operations to improve bond strength, product quality and throughput.

You can see the effects of plasma treatment with improved adhesion of inks, adhesives, coatings and paints. You can use dyne solutions to detect how plasma treating improves in wettability and surface energy. And maybe you’ve heard that plasma cleans, etches and functionalizes surfaces, but what’s really going on at the surface that leads to improved adhesion?

In this presentation, surface treating expert Wilson Lee shares insights on plasma and surface preparation.

This webinar includes:

  • What constitutes a plasma and how it is created
  • Cleaning of organic and inorganic surface contaminants
  • Insights on ion bombardment, surface bonding sites and the importance of polar groups

Access to the webinar includes both the recorded presentation and the presentation slides.
