Dyne Technology offers two types of Plasma Surface Treatment - Atmospheric Plasma and Vacuum Plasma.

What Plasma Surface Treatment can do for you.

Plasma surface modification technology offers innovative solutions to adhesion and wetting problems in many industries. Component preparation using plasma is an important step prior to printing, bonding, painting, varnishing and coating processes. Plasma surface modification provides an economical solution for the cleaning and activation of component surfaces before further processing.

Dyne Technology supplies both Atmospheric Plasma and Vacuum Plasma solutions to improve the surface energy of plastic and rubber components to ensure good adhesion of printing inks, paints, adhesives, coatings, potting materials etc. and for the surface cleaning of plastic, rubber and metal parts. Plasma surface modification equipment is widely used throughout a diverse range of industries and onto an ever increasing range of substrates.

Our growing list of customers includes many in the following industries: medical, automotive component, electronics, cable, ophthalmic, pipe and many more. Through our many years of experience and continuous product development we have become one of the leading suppliers of Plasma Surface Modification equipment.

Whatever your equipment needs are in the field of Plasma Surface Modification, Dyne Technology is here to help you find the most appropriate surface modification technology and equipment to solve your problem.

What is Plasma Treatment?

Plasma is generally described as an ionized gas or as an electrically neutral medium of positive and negative particles. "Ionised" refers to the presence of free electrons which are not bound to an atom or molecule. Plasma or "Radiant Matter" as it was known, was first identified by Sir William Crook in 1879. Radiant Matter was later called "Plasma" by Irving Langmuir in 1928.

Plasma is the most common type of matter in the known universe whether measured by mass or volume. Every star is a giant ball of plasma, even the space between all of the stars is composed of plasma. Plasma is considered to be the 4th state of matter after solid, liquid & gas. The state of matter can be changed by adding enough energy:

Solid + Energy = Liquid
Liquid + Energy = Gas
Gas + Energy = Plasma

In general terms, when you add enough energy to atoms or molecules, what happens very quickly is that the electrons around the nucleus start to "boil off", the temperature becomes too high for them to stay in orbit around the nucleus; that in fact is the state of most of the known universe including the state of our nearby star, that incredibly hot ball of plasma, the Sun
