Changes in the Hydrophilic Properties of Nacre after Treatment with Plasma and UV Radiation of Electric Discharges

  • 3 Accesses

Abstract

The effect of the exposure of nacre natural material to plasma and ultraviolet (UV) radiation of nanosecond electrical discharges in atmospheric pressure air is shown. The radiation treatment of nacre for 5 and 10 min using a GAME instrument leads to a surface modification providing an increase in water wettability; however, the decorative properties disappear.
