Plasma Modifications of Polymers' Surfaces

The field of biomedical applications needs polymers that, besides satisfying the physical requirements of their application, show the so called "biocompatibility", reacting properly with the biological environment in which they are employed. Since biocompatibility involves the interface between the device and the biological environment, surface modification techniques can be of a great help to solve this problem avoiding costly changes of materials.

Among the techniques of surface modification the "cold plasma" is seen as one of the best and of the most promising thanks to its characteristics:



Plasma treatments are suitable for:
