Plasma Treatments

  • Plasma coatings

    Plasma coatings are used to permanently change the surface of a material in a variety of interesting ways.

  • Plasma etching

    Plasma Etching is a more aggressive process that can be used to selectively remove layers of a surface.

Products & Services

  • Contract plasma treatment

    We can plasma treat one-off’s to regular batches of most materials whatever their size and required treatment.

  • Plasma processes development

    We have many years of real-world experience with many materials and can develop a plasma process specific to your needs.
