The Plasmajet® (registered AFS trademark) produces a plasma without a vacuum. The plasma, generated by high voltage in combination with any process gas, is blown out of the unit, and is potential-free. It is used for surface modification.
When the plasma comes into contact with a plastic surface, the wettability is increased. Metal surfaces can effectively be cleaned, and it is also possible to weld plastic sheets.
The system comprises of a plasma reactor with nozzle, a high-voltage generator with transformer and high-voltage rectifier.
The application field for Plasmajet® is mainly where geometric, three-dimensional bodies or profiles are to be coated, printed, glued or cleaned.Typical application examples:
- Treatment of EPDM profiles for the automotive industry before flocking
- Treatment of adhesive grooves before gluing the lens of car headlights
- Treatment of razors and mobile phones before tampon printing
- Degreasing aluminum profiles before bonding
