Ceramics Case Studies

Ceramic Parts Case Study
Client: Manufacturer of Various Ceramic Parts
Parts: Ceramic
Contaminates: Oils, Organics
Equipment Used: Plasma Etch System Model BT-1

This company manufactures various ceramic parts. To gauge the success of plasma treatment on these ceramics parts, a before and after treatment contact angle was taken. Before treatment, the contact angle was 88 degrees. After treatment, the contact angle was reduced 12 degrees. The contact angle in this instance was measured in 5 different places on each substrate, and the contact angle remained ± 2 degrees. This company used an argon~oxygen plasma treatment prior to wire bonding to increase adhesion and bond strength.

Subsequent studies have correlated a reduction in contact angle results and dramatically increased bond strength.

This company chose Plasma Etch, Inc. due to the uniform etch that was received on their test samples.
