The piezoelectric direct discharge (PDD) is a comparatively new type of atmospheric pressure gaseous discharge for production of cold plasma.
Relyon plasma has developed the PDD technology for particularly compact plasma generation. The PDD technology (Piezoelectric Direct Discharge) is based on the direct electrical discharge at an open piezoelectric transformer (PT). Typical industrial applications include surface activation to optimize wetting and adhesion properties of plastics, e.g. in printing, painting and bonding processes.
The high temperatures which are reached in most plasma applications make many users wonder about process safety, especially when highly sensitive materials are treated. This article addresses open questions concerning temperature and heat conduction during plasma applications and cites critical examples which substantiate the suitability of plasma for temperature-critical processes.
