Enhanced Materials Division

Plasma Treatments | Surface Modification | Membranes


Our Enhanced Materials Division (EMD) positions TriStar Plastics as the leading resource to solve your demanding engineering material challenges. From cutting-edge enhancements that improve and extend the performance of polymers and elastomers to custom specialized membranes, we can help you find the best, most cost-effective way forward.

Surface Modification - Plasma

TriStar offers multiple techniques to improve and extend existing materials ― which often results in low cost materials exhibiting properties similar to those costing much more.

The most versatile surface technique we offer is plasma treatment. Plasma can enhance biocompatibility, prevent moisture absorption thru hydrophobic treatments, and improve functionalization and adhesion ― all from a value-driven, green alternative to harsh chemical techniques.

Specialized Membranes

We offer asymmetric and symmetric polyether sulfone membranes and glass membranes with a number of styles and pore sizes. These are often specified for a varity of filtration applications.

Some filter media polymers we sell are:

  • PTFE
  • PES
  • PVDF
  • Nylon
  • PP
