Atmospheric pressure plasma systems and processes

As an independent customer oriented organisation, VITO (located in Mol-Belgium) provides innovative solutions as well as scientifically and technological based advice and support. VITO has developed dedicated atmospheric pressure plasma systems that allow non-air treatment as well as the addition of solvent free liquid chemicals to the treatment. The systems are commercially available via AFS GmbH (Horgau - Germany). VITO focus on the process development using the systems.

Atmospheric pressure plasma systems and processes.

What we offer

We developed industrial atmospheric pressure plasma systems that uses non-air plasma for gas activation and that allow the addition of solvent free liquid chemicals to the treatment (functionalisation). The systems are commercially available at AFS GmbH (Horgau - Germany). We focus together with our customers in an interactive way ("from idea to implementation") on process development.

Processes: activation, adhesion improvement (before gluing, printing, laminating, coating, ...), primer replacement, functionalisation (hydrophobisation, ...).

Materials: polymers including biobased, metals, rubbers, woven, nonwovens, foams, ....

Applications: film, fibres, yarns, composites, membranes, textiles, medical, ...

What we are looking for

Industrial companies that want to improve adhesion in various applications or that want to add extra functionalities to their products or processes.
We also want to participate in cofinanced projects (H2020, Eurostars, ....) that aims at bringing new products on the market or innovative production processes in the factories.
