Plasmatreat – PlasmaPlus® process
What are the sustainable features of your product or service?
Volatile organic compounds (VOC) occur when solvents and solvent-containing products are used, and they are harmful to the environment. Nevertheless, manufacturing in many industries still involves pre-treating surfaces with primers, bonding agents or other chemicals that release VOCs. With its Openair-Plasma process, Plasmatreat offers an environmentally friendly alternative, and CO2-free.
Why do you believe your product deserves to be featured on the Sustainability Trail?
I believe our product should be featured on the Sustainability Trail because if offer’s an opportunity in reducing VOC emissions when using paints, adhesives, and varnishes in industrial manufacturing. The required bonding strength depends on surface energy and surface polarity. Frequently, however, more than 80% of the VOC-emitting substancesused are found in the bonding agent. Pre-treating surfaces with Openair-Plasma, on the other hand, achieves clean, highly active surfaces with high wettability even with water. The use of solvents is therefore no longer necessary. The entire plasma process is dry and wastewater-free, meaning it is a more environmentally friendly process than the previous approach of using solvents and similar products.
