Plasma treatment for surface preparation


    Plasma technologie is very well suited as a surface treatment for many different materials. By choosing plasma treatement you avoid the use of solvents to remove residues of oil or fat. Before applying a coating, a glue or a print, the surface of the used material needs to be well prepared. Standard cleaning methods like sanding, sandblasting, solvent cleaning and other techniques are possible solutions.
    Plasma treatment is less well known as a surface cleaning method, but could be the right solution for many applications.
