Appropriate surface preparation is the essential first step to provide consistent and reliable adhesive or cohesive bond strength. Conventional surface treatment options for joining substrates pose different constraints in terms cost of ownership, environmental compliance, and performance. Our manually operated and automated surface preparation products include:
- CleanLogix PowerSno™ CO2 Composite Spray Cleaning Systems
- Tantec Atmospheric Plasma (AP) and Corona Treatment Systems
- Universal Robot (UR) Collaborative Robot Systems
- PET OSEE Surface Quality Monitors
We offer a modular and expandable CO2 spray cleaning platform called PowerSno™. The PowerSno generates and propels an energetic cleaning spray comprising pressure- and temperature-regulated clean dry air (CDA) containing micronized solid CO2 particles to efficiently remove contaminants from any manufactured surface. The PSVP Basic system replaces multi-step wash-rinse-dry spray and immersion cleaning techniques – providing a robust one-step and 100% dry cleaning process.
We also offer surface preparation systems which utilize a CO2 Composite Spray working in cooperation with an atmospheric plasma. This new surface treatment process, called Particle-Plasma Ablation (PPA), is a cost- and performance-effective alternative to conventional surface preparation methods such as abrasive blast, solvent wipe, Laser ablation, and atmospheric plasma. PPA is a robust platform for preparing many types of substrate surfaces – metals, polymers, and composites – and for numerous medical, aerospace, automobile, ophthalmic and microelectronic bonding applications.
