Plasmatreat has developed and patented an innovative plasma technology for the pre-treatment and finishing of new polymers, filament and staple fibers. The wettability of the fibers and yarns is measurably increased, allowing even solvent-free dyes to bond well and durably. High-speed Openair® plasma jets can keep pace with the demands of new high-performance technologies in advanced filament spinning equipment that can attain speeds of up to 1000 m/min.

Special advantages of Openair® plasma technology in treating yarns:

  • Dry physical surface modification
  • Durable hydrophilic yarn finishing
  • Fully automatic, reliably monitored production process, with up to 8 yarns per plasma jet (yarn jet)
  • Extensive know-how and test systems for treatment of textiles and yarn
