Plasma Surface Activation Systems for Improved Adhesion of Composites, Polymers, Glass, Metals and Ceramics


Plasma surface activation serves as an effective pre-treatment prior to printing, lacquering, or gluing a wide range of polymers. Additionally, glass and ceramics can also be plasma-activated in a similar manner.

Although oxygen is typically used as the process gas, plasma surface activation can also be carried out using ambient air. The duration for which parts are left active can range from a few minutes to several months, depending on the specific material that has been treated with plasma.

Henniker's team of experts has extensive experience in diverse applications and system options. They are equipped to assist users in configuring a plasma surface activation unit that is tailored to your precise requirements.

Plasma surface activation systems:

  • Laboratory/process scale chamber volumes, from a 100 mm diameter
  • Multiple shelf configurations are available
  • Industrial-scale plasma cleaners available for large parts or high throughput
  • Pre- and post-treatment surface test apparatus
  • User-friendly TFT software control


HPT-300 & HPT-500

The HPT-300 & HPT-500 are microprocessor-controlled benchtop plasma treatment systems ideally suited to surface activation, cleaning, and alteration of an extensive range of materials, such as metals, polymers, ceramics, and glass.
