Blown-arc Air Plasma Surface Treating

Blown-arc plasma treating is ideal for improving the surface energy of non conductive surfaces. Higher surface energy facilitates quality printing on plastic parts and polymer surfaces as well as promoting the adhesion of labels and coatings.

Blown-arc plasma effectively treats extruded, pultruded, molded and formed materials. Treatment is ideal for PE, PP, PET, nylon, vinyl, polystyrene, polycarbonate, PVC and all other types of thermoformed and thermoset plastics.

Applications for blown-arc plasma treating include printing, painting, coating, bonding and labeling applications.

How blown-arc air plasma works

Blown-arc air plasma is formed by blowing atmospheric air past two high voltage power electrodes and is sometimes referred to as corona treatment.

The electrical discharge positively charges the ion particles surrounding it. Through direct contact, these particles positively charge the treated area of the object's surface. This makes the surface more receptive to any applied substance such as inks.
