Plasma surface treatment introduced in a lightweight handheld device

The Relyon Plasma PZ2 piezo brush has been developed by Intertronics, which the company claim is the smallest cold active plasma device of its kind.

 

A handheld surface treatment unit, The PZ2 piezo brush ionises atmospheric gas to plasma clean and activate surfaces for improved adhesion of adhesives, or wetting prior to printing or coating, especially useful for the surfaces that are difficult to bond or print onto.

The low temperature plasma discharge is often superior to mechanical or chemical methods of activation/cleaning, especially for delicate parts.

A PZ2 piezo brush can activate surfaces prior to the use of adhesives in industries such as electronics, medical devices, automotive, dental, and in laboratory and development work.

It aids surface wetting for inkjet or pad printing and encoding for parts across all industries from automotive to consumer. It can also be considered for sterilising in microbiology, food, medical and pharmaceutical technologies.

Using a unique piezoelectric technology, the device transforms low input voltage into high electric field strengths, dissociating and ionizing the process gas, which is normally ambient air.

Created as convenient and simple to use, the PZ2 piezo brush requires only to be plugged into a mains electricity socket for instant operation.
