Frequently Asked Questions
By adding gases or precursors it is possible to activate the surfaces more specifically. By adding a Silane compound (arcosil® process) lit is possible to generate very thin silicate layers (only a few nanometres thick) that have very good adhesive properties. This reduces in particular subsurface moisture ingress, providing possible corrosion protection.
• The application itself:
Coating of small areas or large areas
• Due to the shape of the part to be treated:
Flat surfaces or highly structured surfaces, thin films or thick sheets, what kind of height differences are on the surfaces? Do all surfaces have to be treated or certain areas only?
• Situation on site:
What is the best way to move the surface to be treated through the plasma flame? Factors like plant speed, cycle time, handling of the component, ability to integrate into existing production line etc are all playing a significant role.
• Heat sensitivity of the material to be treated
Which method provides the best solution for your application should always be individually tested.
This should always be tested in individual instances.
