Plasma and Flame Surface Treaters Improve Ink Adhesion for printing

Getting inks to successfully bond to a wide range of plastics is an industrial challenge across many industries. Plasma and flame surface treaters have proved invaluable at preparing surfaces for ink adhesion in the decorating, packaging, identification, and marking applications.

When inks do not bond with surfaces it is often because the surface has inherently low surface energy, surface contamination and additives which have risen to its surface. In-line surface treating is performed immediately prior to printing and creates a high energy surface, cleaned of contaminates and functionalized with increased bonding sites for adhesion.

Treatment is effective with water based, solvent and UV inks and all types of printing processes including digital ink jet, pad, screen, flexographic, and gravure printing.
