Plasma Device with Cutting-Edge Piezo Technology
In order to provide products having convincingly compact dimensions, we developed the PDD® Technology. PDD stands for Piezoelectric Direct Discharge. It is based on the direct, electric discharge at an openly operated piezoelectric transformer (PT).
By means of PDD® Technology, low input voltage is transformed. This results in high electric field strengths. The ambient process gas – typically air – is dissociated and ionized.
The advantages of the direct discharge control are obvious: The excitation of gas molecules is highly efficient and safe. Furthermore, the power density of the compact device is extremely high. In practice, a processing performance level is now achieved that had previously been possible only by means of considerably larger installations. This is the ideal device for manual applications in laboratories, medical technology, in commerce and in industry.
The Piezobrush® has been conceived for application by end-users. Here, Relyon Plasma has paid particular attention to usability and user-friendliness. The Piezobrush® requires no specialist, technical knowledge and no complex infrastructure.
Standard Device for Manual Use
The Piezobrush® has been conceived to be an efficient handheld unit. At a maximum power consumption of 30W, cold active plasma with a temperature of ~ 50°C is generated. The Piezobrush® stands out due to its low-maintenance construction principle. All individual components are characterized by their long-term durability and do not need to be replaced or maintained.
The Piezobrush® is also very suitable for being used in professional model making and the manual assembly of small lots. Glueing of synthetic materials becomes easier due to surface activation resulting from the impact of cold plasma.
Surface activation with cold active plasma for example allows simultaneous activation of PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) and substrate surface. Also the adhesion of coatings in the automotive field of application or on polypropylene is optimized.
As a further advantage, prior treatment with the Piezobrush® handheld unit increases the bonding strength in the case of epoxy-based adhesives being used for glueing materials, such as glass, GRP, ABS and other synthetic materials.
Due to the low thermal stress, treatment of materials conventionally used in model making – such as wood and various kinds of paper – using all-purpose power glue is excellent.
You Work in a Laboratory, in Medicine or Food Industry
So then you certainly know how important a sterile and hygienic working environment is. The Piezobrush® allows simple germ reduction on a great variety of surfaces such as glass, plastics or metals and thus provides excellent support in effecting processes in the field of microbiology, medicine, microfluidics or food engineering.

The Piezobrush® PZ2 as loan unit
Would you like to test the Piezobrush® PZ2? No problem – our Piezobrush® PZ2 is also available on loan. We will send you the Piezobrush® PZ2 for a rental fee and you can test the tool directly on your premises in your individual working environment. If the Piezobrush® PZ2 convinced you during the test phase, we will of course credit the rental fee to the purchase price. Otherwise, you can simply return the rental unit to us at the end of the test phase.
