PERU-Plasma treatmeatmet for direct glazing
Purpose and goal
The objectives of Peru project was - Investigate the strength and long-term properties of the plasma-treated coatings and adhesive systems. - Develop process window for plasma treatment of paint and verify these against the current and, if possible, near future paint and adhesive systems (including tape). - Prepare for the implementation of atmospheric plasma, including environmental assessment, FMEA and business case. - Create a network of competences concerning plasma, process and analysis.
Results and expected effects
Peru has increased competitiveness by studying new plasma method. New knowledge now allows introducing plasma in the industry. ´Peru´ has led to increase techniques and skills by a wide consortium. Peru has increased the knowledge of the process layout, materials and analyzes. Innovation environments between the Institute and manufacturing units strengthened. The result of this is the new project. The project has created new knowledge by test cells have been built up and implementation preparation were, made environmental assessment, FMEA and business case.
Approach and implementation
Soil Reduction. Experimental die to reduce dirt was made. Surface analysis. Surface analysis methods were compared with each other with multivariate data analysis. Process parameters: Minimal dissemination of results by automated plasma. The speed and distance of the plasma was varied. Occupational exposure measurements. The plasma produces Ozone. Controlled experiments were made to provide data for ventilation design. Implementing. Test cell was used as a case study for FMEA and business case. New Competitive intelligence was made.
