Plasma activation and cleaning

Polymers with their unique properties are used in many industrial applications. Some polymers as for example polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) need a pretreatment to receive a satisfying adhesion for gluing and printing. The improvement of the adhesion can be achieved by a surface modification of the polymer in a low pressure plasma exited by microwaves. A short-time plasma pretreatment results in an improvement of the bond strength by a factor of 30.
