Surface Cleaning and Surface Treatment

Harrick Scientific's Plasma Cleaner models are low-cost tabletop inductively coupled plasma devices that serve as excellent tools for surface cleaning, surface preparation and surface modification. Plasma treatment may be applied to a wide variety of materials, including metals, ceramics, composites, plastics, polymers and biomaterials.

Our plasma cleaners may be employed in a broad range of surface engineering applications, including surface cleaning, surface sterilization, surface activation, surface energy alteration, surface preparation for bonding and adhesion, modification of surface chemistry, as well as the surface treatment of polymers and biomaterials through activation, grafting and surface coating.

Our plasma cleaners are specifically designed for laboratory, R&D and office use. They offer inexpensive, compact functionality. Key applications areas include materials science, polymer science, biomedical materials, sterilization of dental and medical implants and instruments, optical cleaning and micro-fluidics.
