Handheld plasma surface treatment

Intertronics introduces the Relyon Plasma PZ2 piezo brush® handheld surface treatment unit, which is believed to be the smallest cold active plasma device of its kind.

The PZ2 piezo brush ionises atmospheric gas to plasma clean and activate surfaces for improved adhesion of adhesives, or wetting prior to printing or coating. This is especially useful for surfaces that are difficult to bond or print onto. The low temperature plasma discharge is often superior to mechanical or chemical methods of activation/cleaning, especially for delicate parts.

The PZ2 piezo brush can activate surfaces prior to the use of adhesives in industries such as electronics, medical devices, automotive, dental, and in laboratory and development work. It aids surface wetting for inkjet or pad printing and encoding for parts across all industries from automotive to consumer. It can also be considered for sterilising in microbiology, food, medical and pharmaceutical technologies.

Using a unique piezoelectric technology, the device transforms low input voltage into high electric field strengths, dissociating and ionizing the process gas, which is normally ambient air. The PZ2 piezo brush is convenient and simple to use, requiring only to be plugged into a mains electricity socket for instant operation.

New Polytec PT brochure from Intertronics

High Performance Epoxy Resin Adhesives and Potting Compoundsfor specialist industries.

The new Polytec PT brochure from Intertronics offers information on specialist epoxy resin adhesives and potting compounds for electronics, electrical engineering, optical and medical industries. It details high strength optically transparent epoxies, including formulations with flexibility in the Shore A range. Medical device manufacturers will find products which are biocompatible and tested to USP Class VI. These materials are autoclavable, a requirement when assembles are subject to repeated steam sterilising.

Typical applications for this product range include microelectronics assembly and potting; securing of lenses, prisms and sensors; bonding of fibre-optic cables; and in the medical device arena, bonding of equipment such as endoscopes where autoclaving may be required.

Both two component room temperature curing and single/dual component thermal curing types are listed to match the production processes with performance requirements.

Polytec PT epoxy resin adhesives enable bonding of almost any material combination - even difficult ones such as metals, plastics, glass or ceramic. Their low viscosity means that these compounds penetrate fine cracks and openings and thereby protect sensitive units against mechanical loads and the influence of most process media such as water, oil or gases.
