About PlasmaBound

PlasmaBound, is an Irish DeepTech technology company providing licensed access to transformative technologies in Automotive, Aerospace, Space and other sectors.

Our CPA directly supports EU Green Deal objectives, specifically for Sustainable Manufacturing, but also promotes Circular Economy goals through seamless integration of recyclable composites.Our technology uses Atmospheric Plasma to deliver specific energies to the surface of a lightweight composite material (comprising of fibres within a polymer) in such a manner that causes the polymer to sublimate and leave new surface for bonding. The net result is non-destructive removal of polymer, revealing virgin, undamaged and chemically activated polymer, ready for bonding. This process is controlled by PlasmaBound such that pre-determined depths can be achieved, and this can involve revealing undamaged structural fibres should the customer desire, to act as an anchor for subsequent adhesive application.
