Plasma Treatment: Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic Coating

Plasma treatment for roll-to-roll hydrophilisation, hydrophobisation of non-woven materials, textiles, filters and films.

We offer a wide range of plasma treatment systems tailored to the needs of the textile & filtration industries. Activation, hydrophilic, hydrophobic or other surface modifications are part of the possibilities plasma treatment technology can offer on a real production scale.

Whether you are looking to replace traditional wet chemical treatments with a dry, environmentally friendly plasma process, or seeking to add value to your product with a custom surface property enhancement, we have a solution for you.
