An innovative process brings about a sixfold increase in the amount of adsorbable wax on the sintered UHMWPE running surface of racing skis. In the "PlasmaSki" process, Openair®-Plasma is used in a first step on the running surface of the ski for fine-cleaning the molecular structure of the UHMWPE, and then in a second step for the nano-coating, which strengthens the walls of the cells.

Plasma makes skis fly - New impregnation process for race skis
By using the Plasmatreat technologies Openair®-Plasma and PlasmaPlus the Italian science center Environment Park has succeeded in filing a patent application for a new sensational impregnation process for race skies. The German technical journal KUNSTSTOFFE-INTERNATIONAL („Plastics-International", 1/2015) reports on all the details.
Secure adhesion without the use of primer – pretreatment of large composite panels
Environmentally friendly Openair®- Plasma technology makes pretreatment of large, lightweight composite panels possible at high speed and in continuous flow. COMPOSITE SOLUTIONS (2015/1) has the full report.
Feeling the Rush of Speed – plasma makes race skis faster
By using atmospheric pressure plasma technology a team of Italian researchers succeeded in bringing about a sixfold increase in the amount of adsorbable wax on the running surface of racing skis. The leading journal for surface technology JOT / IST (International Surface Technology 12/2014) has covered the exiting process in all details.
Car manufacturers are placing ever more stringent demands on the quality and environmental credentials of paint processes used on plastic components for vehicle interiors. To meet these requirements, TRW Automotive pretreats millions of switches and controls with Openair® plasma each year. The Swiss journal POLYSURFACES (12/2014) focuses on the process.
Romeo Sierra calling Papa Tango – atmospheric pressure plasma for secure airborne communication
Passenger safety depends to a large extent on clear communication between air traffic controllers and pilots. In order to ensure the reliable adhesion of the conformal coating of the plastic-encapsulated airborne communication assemblies, the highly sensitive electronic components are pretreated with Openair® plasma. CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY (11/2014) reports on all the details of this application.
Safe touch-foil adhesion with atmospheric pressure plasma
The adhesive bond between the touch foil and the new polycarbonate 3D control panel, despite initially appearing to bond reliably, failed the climatic test. A South German automotive component supplier turned to atmospheric pressure plasma to safeguard series production. COATING INTERNATIONAL (11/2014) has published the case study.
Due to its virtually zero potential, the Openair® plasma process secures not only the adhesion of the conformal coating of SMD-boards in aircraft radio communication, but does so without any damage of the highly sensitive electronic components. The US electronics magazine SMT (Surface-Mount Technology 2014/11) has the full story.
An automotive component supplier had an unpleasant experience when applying a touch foil to a polycarbonate 3D control panel. Bubbles formed in the boundary layer during the rigorous climatic test — a problem that was resolved only through the use of Openair® plasma. Specialist plastics processing magazine PLASTVERARBEITER (10/2014) reports.
The Green Alternative – composite plasma pretreatment in aircraft construction
For aircraft composite materials, Openair® plasma has become the green and cost saving pretreatment alternative to conventional methods. The Italian bilingual magazine COMPOSITE SOLUTIONS (2014/9) has the report in its latest edition.
