  1. High Speed Solvent-Free Process for Wide Web Polymer Coatings By Michael G. Mikhael Sigma Technologies International Inc. 10960 N. Stallard Pl. Tucson, AZ 85737 www.sigma-technologies.com SMART COATINGS, 2006 Surface Functionalization of Materials 1

  2. Plasma Treatment Equipment Vacuum Plasma Atmospheric Plasma Coating Equipment Flash Evaporation Polymer Coating Radiation Curing Physical Vapor Deposition Sputtering Technology Licensing Specialty Coated Products SIGMA’S PRODUCT MIX

  3. UNIQUE SURFACE FUNCTIONALIZATION TECHNOLOGIES

  4. Polymer Coating VACUUM POLYMER COATING

  5. Roll-to-Roll Wide Web Coating (up to 4 meters) The Process is Compatible with Inline Metal Evaporation and Sputtering Nanolayer Solvent/Water Free High Speed Deposition (up to 500 meter/min) Encapsulation of Individual Fibers without Blocking Porous Surfaces Smoothing and Leveling Effect Contained Process with no Environmental Impact Applying different Functionality on Both Sides of the Web (hydrophobic/hydrophilic) Inline Patterning for Polymer and Metal Coatings ADVANTAGES of POLYMER COATING in VACUUM

  6. FLASH EVAPORATION VACUUM POLYMER DEPOSITION WITH RADIATION CURING

  7. SCHEMATIC OF COATING SYSTEMS VACUUM POLYMER COATING CHAMBER VACUUM METALLIZING AND POLYMER COATING CHAMBER Plasma Treater Plasma Treater Monomer Evaporator Electron Beam Curtain Monomer Evaporator Electron Beam Curtain Monomer Evaporator Metallization Station Electron Beam Curtain

  8. Monomer Evaporation Why Flash Evaporation? Limitations Monomer Mw and vapor pressure Radiation curing chemistry (free radical and cationic) Critical Factors Size of the evaporator Equilibrium Between Evaporation and Condensation Monomer atomization Monomer feed rate POLYMER VACUUM COATING

  9. Overcomes the Problem of Solubility of Different Materials in Acrylate Binders No solubility limitation in the dye/binder formulation Perfect Molecular Level Dispersion in Vapor Phase Thin Liquid Deposited Layer Remains Homogeneous Cross Linking within Milliseconds from Deposition Freezes the Structure and Prevents Phase Separation More than 95% Chemical Utilization. ADVANTAGES OF THE FLASH EVAPORATION PROCESS

  10. Simple 100% Solids Chemistry Reduce materials inventory Greater flexibility Zero Negative Environmental Effects No reclamation requirements, water treatment, Reduced Plant Space Requirements 100m2 vs 350m2 Better Performance OTHER FACTORS

  11. Clear and Transparent Films Good Abrasion Resistance Coating Thickness ranges from 20nm to Several Microns High Temperature Polymers >250oC Unique Surface Leveling Properties Surface Energies from 20 dyne/cm2 to 75 dyne/cm2 Low Raw Material Cost CHARACTERISTICS OF ACRYLATE COATINGS

  12. VACUUM COATING AND CURING EQUIPMENTS
