Created in 2001, CPI is a pioneering company in cold plasma surface treatment. Located in the south of France, CPI offers its expertise in cold plasma surface treatment in a controlled atmosphere, at atmospheric pressure or under vacuum.
CPI is one of the few companies in the world capable of offering complete roll-to-roll turnkey atmospheric plasma solutions, and contract production treatment (toll manufacturing) done in our facility. We have also developed a patent pending release technology which is sold under the Ximofilms brand.
