Improve Adhesion of Plastics

Surface treatments to improve adhesion of plastics

  • Corona treatment
  • Flame treatment
  • Plasma treatment
  • Surface tension testing pen
  • Plastics with low surface tensions needs surface treatment to improve bonding prior to printing. The best type of surface treatment for your application will depend on several variables. Type of plastic, throughput speeds and budget.

  • Corona treatment increases the surface energy of plastics to improve wettability and adhesion

  • Flame treatment chemically modify a surface for better adhesion

  • Plasma treatment is ideal for applications requirements impossible for other technologies to achieve

  • Surface tension pen test are cost effective, quick and easy method to measure surface wetting or surface energy

*Please note that actual output may be affected by print requirement, ink drying condition, load,unload arrangement, pad stroke speed, pad hardness, production setup, product quality and production control.
