Atmospheric plasma treaters are used to clean, micro etch and functionalize a variety of plastic, metal and glass surfaces. The industrial applications highlighted on this page involve the spot treatment of dimensional objects and sheets prior to printing, painting, decorating, coating, coding, labeling, joining, assembling and bonding of surfaces. In most cases it is ideal to plasma treat the object immediately prior to subsequent process which requires enhanced adhesion properties.
Plasma Assist for Folding Carton Bond Strength
Materials used in folder gluers to produce folding cartons include polycoated, polybacked, virgin kraft board, specially coated materials, UV lacquered surfaces and recyclable materials. These types of folding carton surfaces exhibit varied receptivity to conventional bonding processes. Plasma treatment is highly effective at functionalizing these surfaces to improve productivity and reduce operational costs.
