Plasma treatment plants consist schematically of a chamber where the vacuum is generated, a pumping system and a plasma generation system. The pieces are hooked to an aluminum frame (also called antenna) and placed in the reaction chamber and the system is brought to vacuum. Once the necessary vacuum is reached, a radiofrequency that causes the generation of the plasma is applied to the antenna and therefore to the pieces to be treated. Technology that use the low pressure plasma represent a series of intrinsically “clean” surface treatments as they operate with very low amounts of reagents and consequently with minimal formation of waste products. In fact, the reaction by-products are so minimal that, once absorbed by the pumps, no recovery or disposal is necessary. The strengths of surface treatments with low-pressure plasmas can be summarized as follows:

  • Possibility to expose any material
    without thermodegrading it .
  • Dry process that does not require solvents
    that are often dangerous for the environment.
  • Negligible release of unwanted by-products.
  • Modification of the surface without altering the
    general properties of the product.

The loading and unloading phases can be managed by personnel or by automatic systems. The coating is a compact coating with thicknesses well below the micron.
