White paper: Lifetime of the Standard Module
The lifetime of the Standard Module for the piezobrush® PZ3 and the piezobrush® PZ3-i was verified for 6000 h using an endurance test.
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.
Through a simple measurement of the surface energy, the activation capacity of a surface treatment may be evaluated and quantified. This allows for a quantitative comparison of the performance and efficiency of various methods of surface treatment using a physically defined quantity.
