Vacuum Plasma Treatment

Vacuum Plasma Treatment is Plasma-Treating-of-Medical-Plasticssuitable on a large variety of substrates, from plastics such as PP, ABS and PC, to composite blends such as carbon fibre.

Alongside being used for Plasma Surface Activation, when being faced with the problems of adhesion to “non-stick” polymers and composite blends, Vacuum Plasma is also a popular method of super cleaning metals, glass and ceramics prior to bonding coating and sealing processes.

Why choose Vacuum Plasma?

    • Ideal for batch and inline processing
    • Perfect for complex geometry components
    • Small laboratory sized units available for R&D
    • Easy installation, simply wheel it in, plug it in and switch it on
    • High treatment levels of up to 72 Dyne
    • Fast processing speeds
    • Choice of treatment gases
    • Potential free discharge

Vacuum Plasma Solutions

Plasma treatment offers a great deal of flexibility for the surface activation of a wide range of substrates. Working closely with an experienced Dyne Technology engineer, a Vacuum Plasma unit can be designed to suit your surface activation needs.

With our VacuTEC Vacuum Plasma unit, the chamber size of the unit is bespoke and built to order while using the same parts and processes as all other VacuTEC units, allowing engineers to have confidence in the reliability of the unit as all of our units have a proven track record of excellent performance

The science of Vacuum Plasma Treatment

Using a vacuum pump most of the air is removed from a sealed chamber. The chamber pressure will then reach the required level of remaining air (or other gas) and is subjected to a strong electrical field. This strong electrical field ionises air and other gases, this super ionised air, also known as plasma then occupies the Plasma chamber.

Vacuum Plasma unitWhen the chamber pressure reaches the required level the remaining air (or other gas if added) is subjected to a strong electrical field that ionises most of its atoms. The resulting super ionised air/gas or Plasma occupies the chamber for a pre-determined time and can be used for surface modification or cleaning. Within the highly active chamber, the surrounding gas is broken up into ions, free radicals and other excited particles, these effectively scrub the treated substrate clean which removes contamination. Once contamination is removed, effective adhesion can be achieved.
