Flame surface treaters can be designed to spot treat object surfaces or entire webs. Flame is an aggressive form of treatment which can be a highly effective method of increasing surface energy. Today’s advanced electronic control make flame surface treaters a safe technology for a number of industrial applications as shown below.
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.
Corona, Flame & Plasma Treatment for Packaging Applications
How your packaging looks on the store shelf can make or break your company’s success. So it’s no wonder packagers invest so much in ensuring their package appears flawless when it leaves the factory. Atmospheric plasma and flame surface treaters can play a significant role in helping you catch your consumer’s eye.
Micro Etch Surface Assemblies for Improved Adhesion with Plasma & Flame
Surface Treatment is widely used for assembly applications because of its effectiveness, low cost and environmental friendliness. Common plasma and flame treatment assembly applications include: automotive head lamps, medical devices such as needle hubs, and household appliance gaskets and components.
Plasma & Flame Treatment for Automotive Part Adhesion
The automotive industry is at the forefront of using new materials and technologies to reduce cost and improve performance while striving for green manufacturing processes. Perhaps that’s why the automotive industry is one of the most aggressive users of in-line atmospheric plasma and flame plasma surface treatment technologies.
Converting Film With Corona, Plasma & Flame Surface Treatment
Flexible packaging converters and label printers know that almost all engineered films have nonporus surfaces with inherently low surface energy. These films are surface treated at the time of extrusion, but also require in-line treatment at the time of conversion.
Corona, Plasma and Flame Treating for Plastics
Generally, plastics have chemically inert and nonporous surfaces with low surface tensions. This makes them nonreceptive to bonding with inks, adhesives, coatings, and other substrates. Corona, Plasma and Flame surface treating improve the adhesion of plastics.
