Our surface treatment products alter the surface energy of a substrate in order to improve adhesion – particularly ideal for cases where the material is difficult to wet. By using either plasma surface treatment methods or a special propane-butane-organosilicon gas flame, the surface properties of a substrate can be altered allowing an adhesive or similar to wet easier than without any treatment at all. Contact our product specialists for more information about these technologies.
How does plasma surface treatment improve bond strength?
This video explains how plasma surface treatment affects a substrate to improve adhesion, wetting and bond strength:
Relyon Plasmatool Portable Surface Treatment System
The Relyon Plasmatool is a portable, handheld surface treatment device for improving adhesion and wetting on difficult to bond plastics like polyethylene, polypropylene and other polyolefins. The Plasmatool is particularly effective where materials cannot be treated automatically because of size or mobility.
Piezobrush PZ2/PZ2-i Handheld Plasma Surface Treatment
Relyon plasma surface treatment products improve adhesion and wetting of surfaces which are otherwise difficult to bond or print on. The Piezobrush PZ2 introduces the benefits of plasma surface treatment into a convenient and lightweight handheld format. The Piezobrush PZ2-i is a robot-mountable version to allow for semi-automated and automated surface treatment.
Plasmabrush PB3 Plasma Surface Treatment System
The Relyon Plasmabrush PB3 is a plasma surface treatment product designed for integration into automated manufacturing processes when surfaces are otherwise difficult to bond or print on.
