New Atmospheric CO2 Plasma: The Next Generation in Surface Treating

Release date: 8/1/2007

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI - Enercon announces the introduction of the Dyne-A-Mite™ IT CO2 Plasma to its expanding product line. This new technology provides superior surface treatment to improve adhesion on a wide variety of materials. The use of gas and/or liquid-phase carbon dioxide (CO2) with atmospheric plasma discharge surface pretreatment technology can remove micron and submicron particulates and hydrocarbon-based contaminations on plastics and metals.

The combination of CO2 with atmospheric plasma ion bombardment discharges significantly increases the surface tension of base substrates as opposed to the use of "snow" cleaning processes alone. Bonding strength of adhesives is vastly improved with this approach.

Use of this technology is suitable for either initial or final cleaning, and for numerous critical and non-critical cleaning applications in the semiconductor, disk drive, research, aerospace, military, surface science, surface analysis, optical, medical, automotive, analytical instrument, and manufacturing communities.

"We have found that by adding CO2 to our traditional atmospheric plasma system, the carbon molecules actually enhance the cleaning and bonding of many different materials. This is an exciting advancement. Our customers are seeing the advantages of this new technology and we are anxious to show others looking for a solution to their surface treating challenges," stated Tim Nimmer, Atmospheric Plasma 3D Systems Product Manager.
