It’s simple: Energy that is not consumed does not have to be generated! Plasma technology contributes to the complete replacement of old energy-intensive manufacturing processes with new processes. For example, the drying stage in conventional, wet chemistry processes consumes many times more energy compared to the dry, inline plasma process (energy-efficient surface pretreatment).
Sustaining the environment
In many cases, atmospheric plasma pretreatment eliminates the use of toxic chemicals and the problems associated with their disposal. Plasma activation also delivers reliable adhesive bonding and painting without using solubilizer solvents and thus VOC-free surface pretreatment and manufacturing. It has been verified that the subsequent primer process can be performed chromate-free and water-based using surface coating with atmospheric plasma.
Mobility of the future
The growth and expansion of electro-mobility is the issue of the future in vehicle manufacturing. The development of drive motors with high efficiency and lightweight, efficient energy storage is critical for the success of this project. In order to achieve these properties, the surfaces of the materials used must be selectively modified. Openair-Plasma® coating offers the industry a unique process to accomplish that.
Functional coatings give surfaces completely new functional characteristics – anti-adherent, super-adhesive, flame resistant, antibacterial, scratch-resistant, highly stable, and much more. PlasmaPlus® offers an especially effective method for nanocoating that can be integrated inline for functionalizing surfaces. In cooperation with renowned institutes Plasmatreat initiates and performs research projects in the field of PlasmaPlus® nano-coating.

Plasma moves into the center for professional know-how transfer.
As the innovation leader in plasma-based surface treatment Plasmatreat has been sharing its know-how with the industry for 25 years. The newly founded „Plasmatreat Academy” now combines a wide array of educational programs under one roof and with one common goal: facilitating an in-depth dialog with customers, suppliers, science and research.
Activation of Polymers by Openair-Plasma® (2) - Expansion of the application range for various plastics
The treatment with Openair-Plasma® brings about a targeted, site-selective change in surface properties. In industrial applications, this improves adhesion and normally incompatible polymers can be reliably bonded. Dr. Alexander Knospe demonstrates the possibilities of plasma treatment in the plastics industry and provides insights into the function and advantages of this technology
