Tuesday, 11-10-2020
60 min

This free of charge PlasmaTalk is aimed at all employees in the plastics processing industry as well as in the converting industry in the field of bonding and painting plastics.

Have you ever wondered why some plastics are difficult to glue or paint and what can be done about it? In this webinar Dr. Alexander Knospe, Head of Innovations and Patents at Plasmatreat, will show you how even difficult to bond polymers such as polypropylene can be pretreated in an industrial process with the help of plasma technology.

You will understand how activation, cleaning, and coating with Openair-Plasma® work, especially for plastic applications and what kind of parameters effect the surface treatment. You will be able to evaluate how plasma optimizes your production process and improves your product.

After participating in this PlasmaTalk you will know more about:

  •     Openair-Plasma® - what does it do on the plastic surface?
  •     Long-term stability of the pre-treatment effect
  •     Adhesive strength and long-term stability of the adhesive bonding
  •     Examples of industrial applications

    Coating of plastics! How does it work and what are the advantages?

The PlasmaTalk will run for appr. 40 - 60 min. including FAQs. If you have a specific problem or question, please send your question in advance to and we will be happy to include it into the program.
