PLASMATECH: Microwave Gas Plasma System

April 20, 2001
This company has expanded its contract surface engineering capabilities with the addition of a 2,500+-liter, microwave gas plasma system. The chamber was installed for large-part and high-volume treatment of polymers and is the largest microwave-frequency system installed in North America. Typical applications include surface modification for increasing surface energies prior to bonding, printing, painting or flocking; ultra-pure cleaning; and plasma thin-film coatings.
