"Atmospheric pressure plasma - INNOVATION for surfaces" - this was the focus of the presentations at the 40th workshop of the user group atmospheric pressure plasma ak-adp on 10. and 11.11.2021 in Jena.
Special possibilities of plasma applications for particularly economical and environmentally friendly processes were presented and extensively discussed by the 30 workshop participants who had come despite the Corona situation.
The presentations focused on both a broad spectrum of materials that can be functionalized and very different possibilities of functionalization per se. Examples include, in addition to the established functionalization of plastic surfaces for better bonding and painting, electrolytic plasma polishing, coating of carbon fibers as well as metallization of CFRP components, surface modification and coating of particles, plasma printing and antimicrobial coating of fingerprint scanners. All presentations were discussed openly and broadly with interesting approaches for further work on the topics.
All participants who did not travel were able to follow the workshop hybrid.
Many thanks for the support of the workshop by the Thuringian Cluster Management of LEG Thüringen mbH.
The next ak-adp workshop will take place on 30 and 31 March 2022 in Hannover. The lecture program, organizational information and online registration can be found here.
