By means of a gas discharge, a gas is ionised in a strongly inhomogeneous electrical field. As a result, a plasmaforms between a tip electrode and a counter electrode. By means of this type of corona, primarily films or sheets of non-polar plastics with poor adhesiveness are activated before gluing, painting or printing , ⇒ see Corona treatment.
