Plasma Surface Treatment of Composites

Plasma surface treatment of composite materials, which are used widely in advanced engineering applications, are proving advantageous in both cleaning and adhesive bonding of dissimilar materials.

Available treatments can be applied in both batch-plasma and atmospheric in-line plasma cases and often remove the need for tedious mechanical abrasion and other preparations. We have formed close relationships with major Tier 1 and Tier 2 organisations within the automotive and aerospace industries where our quick turnaround, flexible process development has proved invaluable.

In 2013 we were invited to be part of the Composites Innovation Cluster, investigating the plasma treatment of composite materials as part of the UK government’s £120 million Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative.

This strong research and development focus is a core part of the business, the results of which ultimately benefit our industrial customer base and help set us apart from our competitors.
