Plasma Cleaning Ryton

Does anyone have any experience with plasma cleaning? I currently have an IMS Substrate (10-15 microinch gold flash over electroless Ni) attched to Ryton PPS / R40 walls (40% glass filled/compression molded). The wall is being attached to the IMS using Ablestik Ablefilm 561K with a 1 hour @150C cure. We are wire bonding to the substrate and the package with some dificulty and feel that adding a plasma clean step will reduce the wire bonding issues. If anyone has any data to show that Ryton as well as 561K epoxy will withstand oxygen free plasma clean, at what settings, and for what duration, it would be greatly appreciated.
