Plasma Treatment:
Transforming Plastic Parts
into High-Value Products
F
or medical device manufacturers
that work with different kinds of
plastics (i.e., polycarbonate, polyethylene,
and polypropylene), utilizing
plasma treatments can create
competitive advantages and transform
specific parts into specialized, engineered
components with 10 times the value.
Within medical device manufacturing,
the range of uses for plastics is vast. It includes
syringes, pipettes, bottles, flasks,
vials, multi-well plates, Eppendorf tubes,
culture plates, and other polymer labware
items manufactured for research, drug
discovery, and diagnostics testing. It could
also include parts and components for
various medical devices.
Plasma is a state of matter, like a solid,
liquid, or gas, created by combining energy
and gas, which causes ionization. Medical
device manufacturers that utilize some
plastic parts, for instance, can control the
collective plasma properties (i.e., ions,
electrons, and reactive species) to clean,
activate, chemically graft, and deposit a
wide range of chemistries onto a material.
When medical device manufacturers use
plastics, the most common plasma application
is to improve the bonding power of
chemical adhesives. This can involve bonding
metal to plastic, silicon to glass, polymers
to other polymers, biological content
to microtiter plates, and even bonding to
polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
When manufacturing plastic parts for
medical devices, plasma treatments are
used to solve difficult challenges. Typically,
this relates to raw plastic material
applications with incompatibility issues
that exist.
Plasma can transform the surface properties
of plastic to achieve aims that normally
would not be feasible without treatment.
This can include cleaning surfaces,
resolving difficulties applying printing
When manufacturing of plastics for
medical test kit packaging, plasma
treatment can be used to solve
difficult challenges in the process.
