Commercial atmospheric pressure plasma system used for surface treatment for textiles and thin films

Industry prefers to avoid batch treatments in favour of higher throughput continuous systems. Vacuum plasmas necessarily involve batch treatment in a closed container. However, flat and flexible surfaces such as sheet materials and textile fabrics can be treated at atmospheric pressure if they are passed through narrow slits into a zone where a suitable gas is introduced. We have such a machine from Sigma Technologies International that can be process fabrics, up to 500 mm in width, using various gases in a glow discharge.
Benefits of the Commercial atmospheric pressure plasma system
It is great for industry to use for continuous surface treatment of large-scale textile samples.
