Certain surfaces pose challenges for print processes that can only be resolved by surface pre-treatment. Atmospheric pressure plasma provides the advantages of a corona treatment but achieves higher surface energies for example on polyolefin based materials. Moreover plasma treatment is suitable for complex geometries and conductive materials as well as electronic components and printed circuit boards. This technology is already well established in different branches of industry to improve processes like gluing, potting, coating, etc., oftentimes replacing chemical primers for a more efficient production with lower environmental impact.
