The demands on high quality consumer goods are increasing. On one hand, flawless workmanship, high quality and durability are expected. On the other hand, production that is as environmentally friendly as possible and fair production conditions are required. This makes the use of adhesives, primers, but also solvent-based paints and varnishes difficult or even impossible. A simple way without these problematic processing aids but still achieving excellent adhesion of paints, adhesives and varnishes is to use plasma pretreatment.
Thanks to the inline capability of the atmospheric pressure plasma systems, all the processes in the manufacture of consumer goods can be operated with high process speeds and enable safe and reproducible pretreatment for perfect adhesion and cost-effective production.
