This free of charge PlasmaTalk is aimed at all employees in the plastics processing industry as well as in the converting industry in the field of bonding and painting plastics.

The treatment with Openair-Plasma® brings about a targeted, site-selective change in surface properties. In industrial applications, this improves adhesion and normally incompatible polymers can be reliably bonded. Dr. Alexander Knospe demonstrates the possibilities of plasma treatment in the plastics industry and provides insights into the function and advantages of this technology.

You will understand how Openair-Plasma® works especially for plastics applications and how the surface is modified. You will be able to evaluate how plasma can optimize your production process and improve your product.

After attending this PlasmaTalk you will know more about:

  • Openair-Plasma® - what does it do on the plastic surface?
  • Examples of industrial applications
  • Environmental benefits of using Openair-Plasma®
  • Future projects Plasmatreat is working on

The PlasmaTalk will run for appr. 40 - 60 min. including FAQs. If you have a specific problem or question, please send if in advance to and we will be happy to include it into the program.
