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 frst identifed 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:
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!
What Plasma can do for you.
Plasma surface modifcation 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 modifcation 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
modifcation 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 Modifcation equipment.
Whatever your equipment needs are in the feld of Plasma Surface Modifcation,
Dyne Technology is here to help you fnd the most appropriate surface modifcation
