Introduction to the topic of plasma in medical technology
In medical technology, particularly high demands are placed on the properties of the materials used. This is often at the expense of processability, especially with regard to adhesion processes such as bonding and printing. However, it is precisely these processes that have become indispensable in modern production and are only possible through pre-treatment. Classically, toxic primers are often used here, but increasingly cold atmospheric pressure plasma is also being used for surface activation.
Cold atmospheric pressure plasma is a partially charged gas that has two main effects on surfaces. Firstly, it is able to remove organic impurities from surfaces through fine cleaning. Secondly, plastics in particular can be functionalised so that they wet better and adhesion-controlled subsequent processes are thus possible. These processes take place at the atomic level without changing the optical and bulk properties.
The most common method of plasma treatment is based on PAA® technology, in which plasma is ignited via a pulsed arc and transferred to the surface by a jet. With this method, there are a variety of applications that are also particularly relevant in the medical technology sector, especially when it comes to a high degree of line speed and automation.
Optimizing production processes in medical technology with cold PDD® plasma
The quality of adhesion processes such as bonding, sealing or printing has a decisive impact on the further processing, quality and durability of medical products. The materials used, such as special plastics, are often difficult to wet and usually cannot do without appropriate pre-treatment. Piezo Direct Discharge or PDD® technology provides a cold, atmospheric plasma with which the functional surfaces of a wide variety of materials can be activated either manually or automatically. This allows easy and cost-effective optimization of the subsequent adhesion process without the need for harmful wet chemistry or safety-critical flame treatment. The application areas and advantages of this technology will be demonstrated using various practical application examples.
Plasma in the dental laboratory and implantology
In the webinar, dental technicians and implantologists explain live in which process steps plasma is used in the dental industry and how the patient benefits from the use of plasma technology.
Plasma in medicine
In the webinar, plasma experts and physicians explain how atmospheric pressure plasma is used in medicine for disinfection, sterilization and skin treatment .
The webinars take place via the GoToMeeting platform and participation is free of charge.
We will publish the official invitation with detailed program in the coming weeks.
