enabling surface functionalization through plasma

Enabling surface functionalization through atmospheric plasma

Our technology enables the use of a wide range of precursor molecules in a atmospheric plasma allowing you to design customized surface functionalities ranging from adhesion, release functionalities, tunable super-hydrophobicity up to anchoring of biomolecules onto any substrate.

An enabling technology with unique features

  • Injection and control of a range of gases to provide a choice of reactivity levels (N2, O2, Ar, He, Ammonia mixtures, etc.)
  • Injection and control of various precursors in the plasma enabling functionalization of the treated surface (gases, liquids, a mix of liquids, colloidal suspensions, etc.)
  • This unique combination provides functionalization with high retention of functional groups as the integrity of the chemical precursors introduced in our system is maintained.

adhesion for metal and polymers

Adhesion for metal and polymers

  • Plasma treatment of back coated steel
  • Indirect plasma (PlasmaLine®)
adhesion for metal and polymers litecor car body components
adhesion for metal and polymers graphic


  • Poor adhesion between anodized aluminum and 2K PUR resin
  • Water penetration to electronics during outdoor applications


  • PlasmaSpot® treatment of the aluminum profiles
  • Use of customized precursor


  • Leading to improved interaction between aluminum surface and PUR resin
  • Corona activation alone was NOT bridging between both materials.

Adhesion for EPDM foam



  • Poor adhesion between Acrylic Adhesive and EPDM foam


  • PlasmaLine® treatment using a chemical precursor before lamination to the acrylic adhesive
  • Use of customized precursor


  • Application in automotive sector
  • EPDM foam intrinsic resistance lower than the adhesion


  • Treatment of microwells
    • Enhanced wetting
    • Deposition of a functional layer for surface reaction, adhesion...
  • Diagnostics (TBC, HIV,...)
    • Optimal hydrophilic properties
    • Biomolecule immobilization

This project was funded by the European Union for research and technological development

  • Tissue engineering : advanced scaffolds
    • Enhanced wetting, optimal seeding
    • Higher cell adhesion
    • Optimal cell distribution
