ADHESIVE BONDING PREPARATION - METALS

cleanLASER offers solutions for today’s demanding adhesive bonding requirements for metals. Laser surface preparation is a totally unique method that cleans with the unmatched quality, repeatability and reliability necessary to ensure long-term adhesion performance. Our laser systems remove oxides, and contaminants that reduce adhesive bond strength.

Further, the laser beam can be fine tuned to precisely modify the surface of metals such as aluminum and magnesium for micro-structuring. Laser intensity can be adjusted to accommodate a wide-range of adhesives from low to high viscosity.

The result… a clean surface is achieved with very high corrosion resistance, that’s idea for stable, long-term adhesive bonding in many applications.
