Flexible nano coatings
Requirements for applications in aqueous environments are met by our high performing and permanent plasma coatings, also regarding the interaction of water with the surface and sub-surface (bioresponse, corrosion, wettability, adhesion, defined degradability etc.).
Our knowledge extends to the successful transfer of plasma processes (etching, cleaning, plasma polymerization, sputtering) to industry supported by pilot-plant reactors both for web and fiber coating including cost models.
- Deposition of plasma coatings with film properties such as hydrophilic/
- Formation of vertical chemical gradient films through variation of plasma conditions during deposition reducing aging effects, improving adhesion and affecting protein adsorption.
- Etching processes on polymers exposing embedded structures to the surface or widening pores.
- Development and modification of plasma reactors supporting the optimization of plasma processes, also regarding scalability. By using pilot-plant reactors the conditions for the transfer of plasma processes into industry are examined.
