How does PlasmaPlus® nanocoating work?

Using a special nozzle head, specific additives are supplied to the plasma depending on the application. These are excited by the plasma, which significantly increases their reactivity. This allows the substances to optimally accumulate on the material surface and bond tightly. A coating develops with functional surface characteristics that can be adjusted individually to the process. With PlasmaPlus® technology, different materials like metals, glass, ceramic and plastics.

For this purpose, an Openair® plasma system is equipped with the PlasmaPlus system. This system allows the vaporization of an additive that is liquid at room temperature, which can be introduced into the plasma using a carrier gas in a precisely reproducible manner. Hydrophilic, and for the first time also hydrophobic, nanocoatings are produced with specific coating thicknesses up to 1000 nm (nanometers).
