Plasma Treatment Technology
The Science Of Plasma Surface Treatment Makes It Possible
Integument manufactures FluoroGrip ® using patented, advanced surface activation science and pressure-sensitive adhesive technologies in our world class, state-of-the-art, plasma treatment facility.
Our proprietary equipment and processes are custom designed and built for Integument’s unique cold gas plasma surface modification – the science that makes it possible to apply adhesives and coatings that bond permanently to surfaces of any fluoropolymer film including FEP (Teflon ®), ECTFE, MFA, PTFE, and PFA.
FluoroGrip materials do not rely upon etching or other inferior forms of physical degradation to promote adhesion. The chemical covalent bond formed between the FluoroGrip materials and the adhesive is permanent – enabling FluoroGrip® to be used in applications where no conventional adhesive fluoropolymer sheet or film product can. The bond withstands a variety of thermal and mechanical stresses including extreme temperature cycling, UV, humidity and a wide range of aggressive chemicals without delaminating from the adhesive.
