Topic: Openair® Plasma jets for activation of large surfaces. Plasma surface treatment, plasma pretreatment of car interior parts with complex geometries before coating, wrapping or in-mold decoration (IMD) / in-mold labeling (IML). Alternative to flame pretreatment.

Reliable, efficient pretreatment of large or intricate car interior parts with Openair® Plasma

The use of plasma jets on industrial robots allows highly precise, rapid and environmentally responsible pretreatment of large three-dimensional car interior parts prior to coating, wrapping, in-mold decoration or in-mold labeling. For pretreatment of parts like instrument panels, door trims or sidewall trims a number of wide-angle rotary plasma jets are used, making it possible to achieve rapid uniform surface activation even over large areas.

Unlike the commonly used flame method, pretreatment with Openair® Plasma causes only minimal heating of the parts. There are no undesirable side-effects such as deformation or too intensive treatment which would lead to a loss of adhesion.

Advantages of surface activation with Openair® Plasma:

  • High, uniform quality of activation even on large surfaces
  • Permits the use of non-polar recycled materials
  • Reliable process technology
  • No chemical consumables
  • No thermal distortion or degradation of parts

Plasma Instead of Flame

Peguform pretreats the instrument panels for Audi Q5 off-road vehicles with Openair® plasma instead of the usual flame processing. The selectively applied “cold” plasma jet eliminates the need for masking, while simultaneously protecting the plastic from overheating
