The Use and Benefits of Atmospheric Plasma in Battery Manufacture.


Advancing battery technology

In the evolving landscape of battery manufacturing, atmospheric plasma technology has emerged as a valuable tool, enhancing various aspects of the production process. This advanced technology involves the use of ionized gas (plasma) at atmospheric pressure to treat surfaces, which significantly improves adhesion, cleanliness, and the overall performance of batteries.

Henniker works with UK Foam Sealing Specialist to Boost Adhesion Reliability


How Robafoam and Henniker’s Cirrus atmospheric plasma system enhance foam sealing performance.
Foam sealing is a process that involves applying a foam seal to a surface to prevent leakage, noise, vibration, or dust. Foam sealing is widely used in various industries, such as automotive, aerospace, and construction, to improve the quality and safety of products and components.

Plasma Treatment of Fluoropolymers


PTFE, and other fluorinated polymers, are chemically inert, thermally stable and highly hydrophobic, due to their intrinsically low surface energy. The chemical inertness of PTFE as an example, means that it is virtually impossible to form lasting adhesive bonds and coatings tend instead to form droplets and 3D particles on the surface rather than a uniform film. Traditional methods to increase the surface energy involve the use of aggressive primers which represent an ecological hazard.
