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.
