Plasma Treating Plastics Explained
Our most popular blog of 2016 takes a look at the process of Plasma Treating and explains it simply.
How do you solve the problem of achieving strong adhesion to plastics? Achieving good adhesion levels of paints, coatings, sealants and glues to traditionally “non-stick” plastics is a problem widely faced by engineers from many industries; printing inks will rub off, gaskets won’t bond and coating will not adhere. Our blog post will help you make sense of it all!
Multi-Axis DBD Plasma Treatment of Bollards
Surface Treatment is widespread throughout manufacturing and engineering and is often plays an important part in manufacturing a variety of large two and three-dimensional plastic items; Examples of these include 2D flat sheets and 3D components including bollards and signage prior to coating or fixing of label adhesives.
Did you know that Corona Treatment is also known as DBD Plasma? Take a look at how DBD Plasma helps to manufacture bollards.
Plasma Expert at Queens University Belfast
With specialist knowledge and expertise spanning a breadth of applications, industries and substrates worked on, Chris Lines, Managing Director of Dyne Technology, has become an in-demand speaker on how to solve the problems of adhesion.
Chis spoke at the 20th anniversary of Institute of Materials Finishing (IMF) Ireland which was held at Queens University, Belfast. Focusing on “How do you solve the problems of adhesion?”, we had to include Chris’ top takeaways from this talk as it was one of our favorite moments of 2016!
Improving Plastic Card Printing Quality
Typically, plastic cards of all varieties, from library cards to loyalty cards, are manufactured using PVC; the “non-stick” nature of PVC and other polymers and composite blends often results in inks drawing back and printing inks being easily rubbed off. When printing plastic cards, achieving strong print adhesion and strong lamination to plastic cards is a problem widely faced throughout the industry. Take a look at how Plasma Treatment helps to solve these issues.
Plasma Takes Aerospace Adhesion to New Heights
Vacuum Plasma has provided an ideal solution for one of the world’s largest manufacturers of aircraft parts. The industry leading aviation and aerospace specialist first considered Plasma Treatment when facing difficulties bonding aluminum honeycomb to a polymer based outer layer.
Discover how Dyne Technology helped to solve their problems of adhesion and the incredible technology that made it possible.
Seven Gatekeepers You Must Pass to Achieve Good Adhesion
Did you know that there are seven gate keepers you must pass in order to achieve good adhesion when bonding to plastics?
The Dyne Technology experts have gained this knowledge through over 40 years practical experience solving the problems of adhesion within a multitude of industries throughout the UK and Ireland. Although some of these properties may seem straight forward, they are often overlooked.
Goodbye Flame Treatment, Hello Plasma
Dyne Technology, the UK and Ireland’s leading Plasma Treatment technology supplier has worked closely with market leading thermoplastic hose and tube manufacturer, Copely Developments, to upgrade their surface activation process.
Copely Developments reached out to us when the engineering team at explored alternatives to Flame Treatment because of the unreliable performance it delivered and the lack of control it gave them over their process. Discover why Plasma Treatment is their new Surface Modification method of choice.
Plasma Treating Changes Functionality of Graphene
Haydale, the well-known UK based company with a mission for enabling technology for the commercialisation of graphene, has entered into an exclusive development and supply agreement for the supply of Tantec Plasma Chambers. Lichfield (UK) based Dyne Technology Ltd. are the exclusive suppliers for the UK and Ireland for this revolutionary Plasma Treating technology.
DBD Plasma Treatment of Glass Sheets Prior to Coating Application
Did you know Plasma Treatment is also used to improve the adhesive qualities of glass, metals and ceramics?
Discover why a stand alone DBD Plasma (Corona Treatment) unit is the surface activation method of choice for a major European glass producer. Treatment is to ensure improved bond strength to glass sheets prior to a coating application.
