Plasma treatment has been utilized for decades as a means of engineering the surface properties of polymeric materials for purposes such as adhesion. Until recently, plasma treatment has been a batch vacuum process, limiting its broader application.
Recent development of atmospheric pressure treatment systems has made continuous and rapid processes practical for a wide variety of manufactured products, including cast, molded, extruded, and thermoformed parts. Medical device and electronics industries have been adopting these processes for surface engineering of materials at high rates.
