PLASMA­POLYMERIZATION

Plasma polymerization is a vacuum coating process and offers for many application areas interesting resolution approaches. Vaporous organic monomers are channeled first through special mass flow controllers into a chamber which is suitable for the substrates.

First the substrates are stimulated and activated with an inducted high voltage. Due to the developing ionized molecules, molecule fragments in the form of cluster and chains are formed in the gaseous phase. The following condensation on the treated substrates results in polymerization and the creation of a closed layer.

This Polymerization is a special form of the so called CVD processes (chemical vapor deposition).

Applications of plasma polymer coatings:

  • Hydrophobic and hydrophilic layers
  • Slide and barrier layers
  • Scratch resistant coatings
  • Corrosive protection
  • Anti adhesive, dirt repelling coatings
  • Barrier layers
