Plasmatreat Switzerland

From plastics, metals and glass to cardboard, textiles and composites, plasma pretreatment is the key technology for ultra-fine cleaning, surface activation and plasma coating. More and more conventional pretreatment processes in industry are being replaced by plasma technology to make processes more effective and environmentally friendly. What our technology has in common with Switzerland is its innovative character. Both sides should benefit from this in the future.

We provide support in Switzerland through our global network



At Plasmatreat Schweiz AG, one of our goals is to support Swiss technology companies in evaluating and implementing plasma technology in their processes.

In many cases, Swiss companies work on technical solutions that are then produced as series products in Eastern Europe or South-East Asia. The development of the product as well as the development of the manufacturing processes takes place independently of the actual manufacturing locations.

Swiss universities or institutes working on behalf of large European technology companies are often involved in these processes.

These development teams can draw on our know-how, experience and technology.

  • Support with application development
  • Technical and/or procedural development

  • Spare parts, service and technical support
