Electrical discharges – or plasmas – have fascinated mankind for centuries, because of their aesthetical beauty and uncontrollable behaviour. For a few decades now plasmas are being used abundantly in
µPlasmaPrint Technology Basics

Plasma activated molecules can be used to print nano surface modification. The plasma enables the molecules to react with the surface without the need for elevated surface temperatures, hence even at room temperature the surfaces can be modified. In addition only a few nanometers of the surface is modified by the process.

µPlasmaPrint is an enabler for subsequent processing:
