WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

This webinar is ideal for any engineer or production manager looking to improve surface cleaning, adhesion and functionality without the use of hazardous chemicals or primers. A wide range of applications will be reviewed for printing, coating, decorating and bonding materials from the following processes:

  • Injection molding
  • Extrusion
  • Thermoforming
  • Films and sheets
  • Blow molding

Plasma processes create a variety of specific surface modifications and properties, primarily for the enhancement of adhesion. Good adhesion requires strong interfacial forces via chemical compatibility and/ or chemical bonding. Plasma can also be used to tailor surface energies, and to clean surfaces, in a dry and very green mode. This webinar will explain the potential functionalization of polymer surfaces and define the plasma processing techniques used to improve bond strength.

Attendees will

  • Learn how atmospheric plasma surface treatment improves adhesion for printing, coating, decorating and bonding
  • Discover if blow-arc, blown-ion, variable chemistry or flame plasma is best for their application
  • Find ways to improve productivity, quality control and make processes more green
