In this dynamic webinar Rory Wolf, author of Plasma Surface Modification: Surface Treatment and Adhesion, unlocks the secrets of using a wide range of atmospheric plasma and flame plasma surface treating technologies to improve adhesion, functionalize surfaces and improve productivity.
The webinar features live video feeds of various atmospheric plasma systems in action.
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:
Materials to be discussed include:
Good adhesion requires strong bonds via chemical compatibility and/or chemical bonding. Plasma processes modify surface properties to promote adhesion. Plasma treatment is a dry and green process which may be tailored for specific surfaces.
U.S. demand for extruded plastics is expected to grow by 3 percent in 2014, with PVC remaining the largest segment.
