Improve Folding Carton Bond Strength

Converters are taking advantage of Enercon's atmospheric plasma surface treating technologies to improve the performance of their gluer folder operations. Adding Enercon's Dyne-A-Mite™ IT atmospheric plasma treater increases adhesive bond strength for both hot-melt and cold-glue adhesives.

In addition, these economical plasma treatment systems increase folding carton production speeds and generate cost savings.They allow the use of less expensive adhesives and eliminate the need for mechanical surface preparations such as glue flap roughening and perforating.

Converters find that Enercon's plasma treatment also provides a benefit for carton window adhesion. Most impressive is the technologies ability to effectively treat a wide variety of materials including, polyboard, specially coated surfaces, and UV lacquered surfaces.

Enercon's atmospheric plasma produces these results by cleaning the surface of contaminants, micro-roughening the surface to create more bonding sites and functionalizing for adhesion. Atmospheric plasma systems are safe to operate and easy to integrate into existing or new production lines.
