Possibilities of plasma treatment

Materials cleaning

Plasma technology offers solutions for any type of contamination, for any substrate and any post-treatment. In the process, molecular contamination residues are decomposed as well.

Activation of materials

Good wettability is a prerequisite for the adhesion of binding partners in painting, gluing, printing or bonding.

Etching materials

Plasma technology allows for anisotropic and isotropic etching. Isotropic etching is done by chemical etching and anisotropic etching by physical etching.

Coating of materials

With low-pressure plasmas, components can be tempered with various coats. This is done by supplying gaseous and liquid starting substances into the vacuum chamber.
