Atmospheric Plasma Spot Treatment Applications

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.

Label Adhesion Improves with Flame and Plasma Treatment

When packagers are faced with label adhesion challenges flame and plasma surface treaters are often used to increase bond strength. Label adhesion problems occur because many of the container, lid and cap materials used in packaging are chemically inert and non receptive to bonding with glue.
