Atmospheric Plasma Web Treatment Applications

Atmospheric plasma treaters are highly effective at treating polymer films, nonwovens, textiles, foams, and other materials which are processed in a roll to roll web format. Plasma technology is optimized for specific industry applications with specific gas chemistries and are ideal for applications that require high and long lasting treatment levels that would be otherwise impossible. The content below shares insights on the use of atmospheric plasma for web processes in a variety of industries.

Improve Lamination Adhesion with Surface Treating

For many industrial applications, the use of a single ply of a material does not provide all of the critical properties required for the optimal performance of a product. In these cases, a composite of two or more layers of material can provide this required performance. A common method of creating such a composite is to laminate various materials to each other with an adhesive. Surface treating solutions such as corona treaters, atmospheric plasma systems and flame treaters are often used to improve lamination adhesion.
