Plasma pre-treatment and coating
Plasma is a partial ionized gas, a “cocktail” of excited particles, molecules, radicals, ions, electrons and high-energy radiation such as UV. It is special because: Plasma can clean surfaces and chemically activate them, which often is the only way to make coating possible on some substrates. For this, we use low-pressure (vacuum) and atmospheric pressure plasmas.
Plasma technology sets new standards for the functionalization of surfaces in industries such as automotive and medical technology. Unlike conventional coatings (wet and powder coating), plasma coatings are able to apply a homogeneous coat of coating just nanometers in thickness with properties such as anti-adhesion and barrier effects, or chemical and corrosion protection. Even parts with complex geometries are usually suitable for coating with plasma. At ADELHELM, we investigate the properties of the part’s surfaces before plasma treatment. The most important measuring instruments for this purpose is the reflected light microscope, the ATR-IR spectrometer and the contact angle-measuring instrument.
