TouchMark Surface Pretreatment

TouchMark Plasma Treatment Promotes Ink Adhesion:

TouchMark works with its medical and electronic device manufacturing customers on solutions that temporarily modify the surface energy of difficult-to-print plastics. Using plasma gasses, we can increase surface energy to promote permanent ink adhesion.

Which medical plastics can be treated with plasma?

Most standard-grade medical plastics such as polystyrene and polypropylene are all good candidates for plasma.

What are some of the key benefits for medical applications?

Plasma helps to change the surface chemistries of plastics while also improving molecular adhesion and hydrophilic surface conditions.

What types of medical devices can be treated by plasma?

  • Catheter tubing
  • Endoscopes
  • Stents
  • Optical lenses
  • Pharmaceutical trays
  • Cell generation plates
