The Blue Sky Bio PlasmaLoc is a compact plasma handheld device that creates cold active plasma at a temperature of less than 50°C. The main component of this portable plasma device is the TDK piezo plasma generator CeraPlas™ – a high-voltage discharge device for generating cold atmospheric-pressure plasma. Plasma is used to increase the surface energy of metals, ceramics and resins. The process performed at room temperature without contact of the treated surface and takes less than one minute without requiring disposable materials. Treated implant surfaces exhibit a greatly increased wettability. Hydrophilic implant surfaces have shown to promote cell deposition. Restorative resins and ceramics treated with atmospheric plasma allow for uniform staining and optimized bonding strength.
Increased wettability of implant surfaces
Increased bonding strength of abutments and prosthetics
Improved adhesion between acrylics, metals and ceramics
Improved shade appearance and shortened process times for surface staining
This module is used to treat electrically conductive components such as implants and metallic restorations . With this module, the plasma only ignites when it is close enough to a conductive surface. At a distance of a few millimeters, a violet glow is visible in the gap between module and substrate indicating that the treatment is being performed.
This module is designed for the surface treatment of non-conductive substrates such as resins and ceramics. For effective treatment, a module-to-substrate distance of 1 to 5 mm is recommended. A safety feature to prevent damage to the unit and to the treated surfaces turns off the device automatically if uncontrolled arcing occurs on the substrate during use.
