Polystyrene (PS) thermoplastic material, transparent, rigid and hard, but brittle and easy to scratch. Important plastic material for consumer goods. Without pre-treatment, most coats adhere poorly on
Painting processes Painting means applying a coat of paint; it can be used on a wide range of items. Different painting processes can be used in automated systems for uniform and fast coating of high
Advanced composites advanced composites , continuous reinforcement fibres of extreme stiffness and/or strength are embedded aligned in a (plastic, metal, ceramic) matrix material. In this way, the hig
this can cause electrons electrons separating from their atomic or molecule compound. In this process, ions and a plasma the substrates to remove contaminations. As the free electrons migrate to the anode
state when all electrons are at their lowest possible energy level. In general, the energy levels of the entire matter are fully occupied or empty, for if an energy level for electrons is only partially [...] partially occupied, it is immediately taken up by electrons of another molecule or atom, in general by the atoms involved combining. Atoms and molecules which are not in their ground state are therefore highly [...] plasma, many atoms and molecules are not in their ground state but in an excited state, i.e. the electrons are either excited to a higher energy level are completely removed from the atomic shell. In the
Gas supply Process gas is supplied from a gas cylinder or from a vaporiser in case of media which are in liquid state at atmospheric pressure. The gas supply is precisely regulated via a needle valve.
Easy-to-clean The term “ easy-to-clean coat ” characterises coats with ultra-hydrophobic and in particular in addition to this, lipophobic properties. Sometimes, these surfaces are also called “self-c
outermost electron shell of their atoms is completely filled with electrons. gefüllt ist. For this reason, noble gases do not form any bonds with other atoms because neither valence electrons can be released [...] released nor valence electrons of other atoms can be absorbed. Noble gases therefore always exist in atomic form and do not form molecules . If noble gases are used as process gases in plasma technology
Stainless steel Collective term for steels which, due to alloying of non-ferrous metals – mostly chromium and nickel – are much more corrosion-resistant than pure iron .
Duplex coating Multi-layer coat structure generated via two or more subsequent coating processes under different parameters in order to make use of synergistic surface properties.
