For electronic circuit boards, plasma treatment can be used in highly effective ways.
- 1. Clean the surface of the circuit board, the components, and the laminate to be 100% contamination free.
- 2. Activate the surface of all the circuit board parts to allow easier bonding and better adhesion.
- 3. Treatment allows better wettability and stronger adhesion for applied coatings and glues to substrates, making their bonds less susceptible to failure.
- 4. Reduces factory rejects and produces higher quality PCB's.
Traditionally, cleaning and adhesion promotion has been achieved by either using a wet chemistry treatment like washing or applying extra undercoats (priming).
Now, there are new methods and techniques for improving cleaning, adhesion, and actually coating circuit boards differently from the traditional methods.
One of these techniques is Plasma Surface Treatment.
