What Plasma Treating Does to a Surface Video Animation

Plasma Treatment cleaning, etching and functionalizing

Atmospheric plasma treatment is used by manufacturers, converters and packagers to improve surface energy and adhesion. The animations below show how the process effectively functionalizes surfaces. These treatment systems diffuse reactive gases toward the surface under the influence of electrical fields. Low molecular weight materials such as water, absorbed gases and polymer fragments are knocked off the surface to expose a clean, fresh surface. At the same time a percentage of the reactive components in the plasma bond to the freshly exposed surface, changing the chemistry of the surface and imparting the desired functionalities.

Whether you are printing, coating, laminating or bonding surfaces, Enercon has a surface technology to meet the challenge of your applications.
