INNOVATIVE SURFACE TREATMENTS
WITH NANOSECOND PULSED POWER PLASMA PROCESSING SYSTEMS
TPS technology solves the problems historically limiting wider adoption of plasma treatment
Lower cost of consumables
Novel chemistry…without all the chemicals
Clean and activate surfaces to improve bonding and adhesion of coatings in atmospheric and low pressure applications
Up to 250 times more efficient compared to other methods
of producing plasma
Treat heat sensitive substrates in open air environment with a stand-off plasma stream
Lower particle/dust formation
“Nanosecond pulsed power excitation holds the potential to produce a higher number of active species, higher-energetic species, and ignite a discharge quicker and more easily at a lower cost of power.”
