What is Plasma?

Every substance changes its state if it is heated for a longer time. At some point, it changes from the solid to the liquid state and finally to the gaseous state. And if it is heated even more, Plasma is eventually formed.

The fourth dimension of matter.

Water in the freezer compartment turns into ice. If the ice is taken out of the compartment, it melts. It transforms into steam if it is boiled on the cooker. If the temperature is then increased further, a Plasma is created - this is the fourth form (state of matter) that a substance can have, in addition to solid, liquid and gas.

Where is Plasma found?

In the light of a candle or an energy-saving lamp, an electric spark, the sun and the stars - we encounter plasma very often in our lives. All these forms of plasma have one thing in common: they are hot - hence they are termed as hot plasma.

A cocktail of many reactions

Plasma - including our Cold Plasma generated in air - is a very complex cocktail: over 600 different reactions take place in this state of matter. If one manages to control this complex cocktail and achieve the desired reactions, then thanks to a well thought-out Plasma design!! one obtains an effective mixture at the molecular level, which is generated only by the room air and the targeted addition of energy.

What Cold Plasma works against.

Cold plasma has demonstrated its effectiveness against various types of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. Cold plasma produces a mixture of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species that can damage the cell membrane and DNA of microorganisms, leading to their inactivation. In addition, Cold Plasma is effective against mites, biofilms, odors, harmful molecules and allergens.

What is Cold Plasma used for?

Cold Plasmas have a wide range of potential applications, including disinfection or sterilisation of surfaces and devices, surface modification to improve adhesion, wettability and biocompatibility. Specifically, it is used in the field of medical technology, agriculture, water and air purification as well as in the textile and clothing industry and in the cosmetics environment.
