Belgium based Europlasma is a world leader in low pressure plasma technology and a key provider for sustainable coating technology. It delivers ‘best in class’ DWR, breathability, high wash-durability, oil-repellency and abrasion-resistance. A game changer in textile coating applications.
Founded in 1993 as a producer of machines, used by the electronics industry for plasma cleaning and edging, Europlasma gradually developed itself into a technology provider and crossed over to other industries.
Together with its customers, Europlasma developed and optimized plasma processes bringing them new solutions. These years of intensive research and development by our people, resulted in a sustainable and cutting-edge technology. It is valued by customers all over the world for its high performance. But not only increases it performance, it also provides a dramatic reduction in environmental footprint, making it a key sustainability factor.
Five times less chemicals;
50 % less energy consumed;
Eliminates the use of water in the coating process;
No VOC’s used.
Europlasma has modestly been rolling out this technology in the textile industry since 2012. Implementing this technology prevents a tremendous amount of waste water and reduces the chemical load, hence a game changer for coating applications.
This technology, marketed by Europlasma under the brandname Nanofics® refers to nanoscaled functionalization into the core of complex shaped materials and products. It is Europlasma’s patented and patent pending nanocoating technology platform.
Four innovative nanocoating solutions for textiles will be demonstrated.
Nanofics 10® coatings have very high affinity for water, resulting in water contact angles of lower than 10 degrees according to ASTM D5964.
Nanofics 120® coatings on the other hand are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 120 degrees according to ASTM D5964) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 8 according to ISO 14419)
Also Nanofics 110® coatings are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 110 degrees according to ASTM D5964) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 6 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings. Completely free from PFOA and PFOS.
Now Europlasma is leading the way to even more environmentally friendly solutions with the development of a new family of water repellent nanocoatings which are completely free from halogens.
Technology licencer for breathable nanocoatings under the family name Nanofics. (hydrophylic as well as superhydrophobic nanocoatings)
Supply of reactive plasma-treatment machines.
Supply of Chamber as well as Roll to Roll-plasmatreatment-machines.
