How to Develop and Control Plasma Treatment Processes for Polymers Plasma treatment has been utilized for decades for engineering the surfaces of polymeric materials for adhesion. Recent development of atmospheric pressure treatment systems has made continuous processes practical for many manufactured products, including cast, molded, extruded, and thermoformed parts. Medical device, electronics, auto- motive, aerospace, and consumer products industries have been rapidly adopting these processes. This webinar discusses the basic principles of plasma treatment of polymers and outlines well-defined methodologies for developing, evaluating, and controlling these processes. PRIMARY TOPICS: > Basic understanding of parameters that affect plasma treatment of polymers > Knowledge of the effects of plasma treatment on polymer surface > Basic skills in developing and evaluating plasma treatment processes > Tools for controlling plasma treatment processes, in the lab and manufacturing Tuesday, December 11th 2:00 PM ET Register for this webinar at: Dr. Giles Dillingham has worked in the areas of surfaces, interfaces, and adhesive bonding for 30 years. He earned a Ph.D. in Materials Science from the University of Cincinnati, then worked at Dow Chemical developing surface treatments for aerospace applications. Returning to Cincinnati he worked on plasma processing of materials and adhesive bonding of advanced composites while incorporating and growing BTG Labs since 2001.
