Innovations in alpine winter sports: plasma activation for securely bonding coatings, layers and edges on skis and snowboards

Ice and snow create big challenges for the quality of bonding in skis and snowboards. The quality of edges, for instance, is important for steering and for safety. Especially critical, because the total laminate is composed of many layers of material, is the reliable adhesion of layers and edges so they can withstand powerful forces.
As a pre-treatment, Openair® Plasma makes a unique contribution to meet the demands placed on Alpine sports gear. The adhesion capability of the generally non-polar materials is dramatically improved by plasma activation, which optimizes the integrity of the plastic laminates. The result is an increase in the durability and quality of winter sports gear.
