Modern touchscreens, LCD displays and TV screens make high demands on production processes as the plastic parts must be provided with highly transparent scratch-proof and anti-static coatings before they are bonded. The high degree of automation in the electronics industry demands a surface treatment process that can perform inline with the utmost reliability, delivering a high degree of activation at high speed.
The microfine atmospheric plasma cleaning and plasma activation provided by the Openair® process offers the electronics industry extremely effective solutions. Plastic displays are treated with plasma directly before application of the antistatic and scratchproof coating in the coater. Thanks to the high surface energy achieved by the Openair® Plasma technology, the applied coating spreads evenly to form a homogeneous film. This results in a flawless appearance and significantly reduces reject rates in production.
