In close cooperation between the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research e.V. (IPF) and the company Tantec another technological level in the project "InsBioration" could be jumped to! With the advanced VacuTEC2020 - vacuum plasma unit, the researchers at the IPF can break new grounds in surface treatment. With three industrial gas inlets in combination with advanced high-performance components, new standards in the surface treatment of plastics and other materials can be realized.
An advantage of plasma treatment is the substitution of environmentally hazardous substances, which are preferred in the current state of the art in plastics pre-treatment for metallisation and surface modification.

We would like to thank the Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research Dresden for the opportunity to present our InsBIOration project at K2022 in Düsseldorf.The world's No. 1 trade fair for plastics and rubber takes place every three years and this time was dedicated to current topics such as the circular economy, climate protection and digitalisation.

27th - 28th of September 2022

The kick-off meeting of the Call 2021 project InsBIOration took place on 27-28 September 2022 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Many thanks for the warm welcome by the hosts Dr. Claudiu Filip and Dr. Jürgen Liebscher from the National Institute for R&D of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies and the excellent tour by their team. We would also like to thank all participants, both on-site and online, for the productive exchange through presentations and discussions.

Many thanks to all partners!
