    The main objective has been the development of an inline plasma treatment process suitable for industrial process. The equipment and method for atmospheric plasma treatment of roll-to-roll substrates has been developed. Improvements in the laminate adhesion and treatment durability in comparison with corona have been achieved especially in higher line speeds. Plasma-assisted immobilisation of antimicrobial substrates and the inhibition of bacteria growth have been achieved. In addition, a reduction in the OTR-value of the uncoated samples was obtained. Silane based sol-gel coatings were successfully spray coated on plasma treated paper products to enhance the barrier properties and surface free energy.
