Masterclass

Atmospheric & Low-Pressure Plasma - a sustainable technology

In search for more sustainable and environmentally friendly surface treatment techniques, the atmospheric plasma technology may offer an interesting alternative for cleaning, activation, modification, or functionalization (thin coating) of a surface. This masterclass will provide an overview of the state of the art of the plasma technology.

In contrast to traditional techniques such as blasting, wet-chemical primers and coatings or chemical etching, the atmospheric plasma technology stands for less material consumption, no VOCs and lower energy consumption, as curing at high temperatures is not necessary.

This masterclass, organised by Centexbel and Sirris, will provide an overview of the state of the art of the plasma technology. Two keynote lectures will extensively discuss the technical aspects of the plasma technology itself and the sustainability of the technology compared to traditional coating techniques. In addition, the application of the technology in view of the use of recently developed bio-based coatings will be addressed.

Subsequently, three producers and suppliers of atmospheric and low-pressure plasma systems will exemplify where the technology is already applied in the industry on various material substrates, including textiles, plastics, metal or composites. In addition, each company also states its vision on sustainability.
