News - Henniker Plasma
There’s no denying that plasmas look good, but did you know that a simple visual inspection of the plasma can provide a great deal of useful diagnostic information. Getting to know the plasma’s visual characteristics can also help to diagnose early problems before they become an issue. Let’s talk about a few of the main factors that affect how the plasma looks: (i) power, (ii) pressure, (iii) process gas and (iv) pump down curves.
What is surface energy and why is it important?
In this ‘Let’s talk About…’ article we discuss the measurement of surface energy and ultimately, how plasma treatment can be used to alter surface energy in order to improve adhesion and bonding.
The most commonly asked question concerning plasma surface treatment is; How long does plasma treatment last?
In this ‘Let’s talk About…’ article we discuss the main factors that influence the lifetime of plasma surface treatments and explain how these factors can affect different materials.
