New materials in aircraft construction: efficient pretreatment with atmospheric plasma
Surface treatment with Openair® Plasma in aircraft construction is an innovation driver that offers many outstanding advantages:
- Plasma pretreatment improves stability of CFRP components.
- Openair® plasma enables reliable high-quality processing in downstream bonding and painting operations.
- Openair® plasma makes possible for the first time selective, robot-guided inline plasma pretreatment on large-format components.
- Only an atmospheric process is feasible for pretreatment of such components because of their large dimensions.
