Plasma Cleaning Glass, Metals & Ceramics
Ultra-fine plasma cleaning removes organic contamination from the surface making surfaces more wettable.
Plasma cleaning glass, metals & ceramics components is rapidly displacing time consuming, hit and miss, solvent and aqueous based cleaning methods. For this industry in particular; inefficient wet chemical procedures ultimately lead to higher costs and reduced yield and even prolonged treatments can be ineffective in removing seemingly insignificant trace levels of organic contaminants that can ultimately affect how fit for purpose a particular component is.
New legislation will also restrict the use of environmentally unfriendly chemicals in addition to e.g. trichloroethylene. Plasma cleaning offers significant advantages over wet cleaning methods alone and can enable a leading market position for those adopting it early.
ULTRA-FINE CLEANING OF GLASS, METALS & CERAMICS
- Removes organic contamination
- Surfaces are rendered more hydrophilic
- Improved adhesion
- Ability to treat temperature sensitive materials
Plasma Cleaning for UHV Applications: Particle Accelerators
UHV critical components, such as those used extensively in surface science laboratories and particle accelerators, are required to meet strict cleanliness criteria of which pre-installation cleaning is an important step.
