APJeT Dry Plasma Process

APJeT Dry Plasma Process is a new technology that removes water from the finishing process and uses atmospheric plasma to cure hydrophobic finishes to fabrics and other substrates. 

According to the manufacturer, the APJeT Dry Plasma Process eliminates water from the finishing process and has little to no effect on fabric hand or colour. The APJeT Dry Plasma Process is also said to safely treat fabrics and other substrates, such as films, made from heat-sensitive fibres and materials.

Planet friendly, APJeT’s patented dry plasma process also aims to significantly reduce the amount of energy and chemicals needed to achieve a durable, high performance finish.


APJeT is the industry leader in atmospheric plasma technology. This technology uses lower level amounts of chemistry thereby reducing negative environmental impacts, eliminates water usage, and reduces the high energy requirements needed for traditional wet finishing of textiles, the company reports.

Originally founded in 2002, the company began expansion of its development work from concept to commercial application in 2008. Although originally focused on textiles, APJeT's technology can be used in a wide range of potential markets including applications on films and glass.
