Jackweld Ltd is an industrial partner of Molecular Plasma Group in the UK
working to promote industrial exploitation of the
technology as a tool for innovation in adhesion.
New surface engineering technology at the molecular
level opens up improvements for difficult to bond materials
Can be scaled up and implemented on production lines: car assembly, electronics, aerospace…
Single-step, dry, low energy, scalable to very large areas
Fast process. Cold process. On any substrate.
30 – 500 nanometer molecular layer grafted with covalent bonds onto the activated surface with no loss in functionality
Durable modification of the chemical composition of the surface
Extremely wide range of precursor molecules (organic, inorganic, biomolecules, nano-particles…)
Fluorinated plastic films are valued for their
resistance and impermeability. However, the
integration of the EFEP film into composite
structures is very difficult due to its inertness.
Previous methods, such as wet chemical and traditional plasma activation of the surface did not meet the customer’s requirements.
We solved the customer’s problem by grafting adhesion-improvement molecules onto the EFEP film using our proprietary Molecular Plasma Technology. This allowed us to achieve perfect adhesion whilst maintaining the integrity of the EFEP film.
The current method of adhesion for items such
as rear-view mirrors onto windscreens consists
of manually applying a wet chemical primer followed by a resin such as polyurethane. The
customer wanted to look at automating the
process while reducing the toxicity and quantity
of the chemicals used.
We produced a solution that met all technical specifications of its client, a major German luxury car manufacturer. Furthermore, as our solution reduces the use of chemicals by several orders of magnitude and can easily be integrated in their automated manufacturing line, we met all their expectations.
