Wire & Cable Marking Plasma Adhesion Assistance

Atmospheric plasma treaters are being used as in-line surface treating solution to increasing marking adhesion for wire and cable. Atmospheric plasma systems activate surfaces and increase surface energy levels to promote bonding of aqueous inks, coatings and adhesives to provide excellent abrasion and smudge resistance.

Treatment is effective on a wide variety of polymer materials used in the wire and cable industry and enable "green" process advancements and reduced production costs when compared to existing manufacturing technologies. Manufacturers are able to replace solvent inks with water based or UV inks eliminating harmful VOCs. Surface treatment also eliminates the use of chemical primers and surface roughing processes prior to printing.

Enercon's Blown Ion plasma treater and Plasma3™ VCP plasma treatment system are used for wire and cable applications.
