Inhance Technologies Brings Reactive Gas Technology to Auto Industry

Plastics Decorating

Inhance Technologies, Houston, TX, has created an automotive business unit to bring its Reactive Gas Technology® to the automotive industry. A proprietary solution, Reactive Gas Technology permanently modifies surface properties of a wide variety of materials.

The process maximizes the bonding of water-based coatings and adhesives for interior and exterior applications, and eliminates the need for adhesion promoters. The technology also can be tailored to increase lubricity; abrasion resistance; chemical resistance; or to impart fuel and solvent barrier properties on the treated part. The surface modification can be very rapid, often only a few seconds, which enables processing to be done continuously inline, leading to reduced cycle times.

The technology offers a more sustainable alternative to chemical adhesion promoters and solvent-based systems and is an economical alternative to current processes such as flame, plasma or corona treatments. The Inhance Technologies Automotive Business Unit will be led by Nathan Slating, vice president – automotive market.
