Surface treatment of glass

The surface treatment of glass with plasma technology has been established in practice for many years. Without pre-treatment glass has a typical surface energy of 47mN/m. After plasma treatment, the surface energy increases significantly. Treatment with the high-power plasma system plasmabrush PB3 achieves a surface energy of >72mN/m and with the handheld plasma unit piezobrush PZ2 a surface energy of >67mN/n. Test inks according to DIN ISO 8296 were used for the test.

Application example: bonding glass

A typical application example is bonding glass. The following table shows the improvement of the average adhesive strength after plasma treatment compared to untreated glass substrates.
