Plasma treatment prior to epoxy bonding is a common industrial process used to improve the adhesion of epoxy to a surface, and is a reliable method for ensuring a strong bond between two materials. Plasma treatment is a plasma glow process used to clean or etch a surface prior to application of an adhesive, such … [ Read More ]

Plasma Treatment, Hydrophobic to Hydrophilic, O2 and N2
Hydrophobic to Hydrophilic using a plasma system to plasma treat a silicon surface with a nitrogen gas plasma or a oxygen gas plasma. We show how to change to a hydrophilic using a DI water droplet test.
Plasma Cleaning Systems
Plasma cleaning systems use an energetic plasma or a glow discharge created from a gaseous species to remove impurities, organics and contaminants from surfaces is called Plasma Cleaning. Typical gases used such as argon and oxygen, produce a plasma from high frequency voltages ionizing the gas at low atmospheric pressure in a controlled sealed chamber. … [ Read More ]
