Enercon's Label Expo exhibit offers comprehensive surface adhesion solutions for label-tag converters and their customers

Release date: 6/1/2004

During Label Expo, label and tag industry leaders will have a variety of reasons to visit Enercon Industries Corp. at booth 5900. Enercon's comprehensive approach includes surface treating solutions for both traditional and unique converting applications, as well as surface treating solutions for label applications.

Traditional tag and label converting requires corona treatment to raise the surface energy of substrates. Compact and powerful systems such as the TL Max™ and XL™ corona surface treaters provide reliable treatment and offer an economical alternative to top-coated material.

For difficult to treat materials and surfaces requiring stringent surface specifications, Enercon offers revolutionary technology in its Plasma3™ surface treater. This atmospheric plasma treater provides reliable treatment for materials once thought untreatable. Plasma3™ can improve hydrophilicity and surface coating performance. This atmospheric plasma web treatment system is also adept at improving the performance of adhesives.

Enercon will also exhibit three-dimensional surface treaters which can be used to treat objects prior to decorating and labeling. The company's line of air plasma and flame plasma three-dimensional treaters raise surface energy on objects to promote adhesion. 3-dimensional treaters allow clear, readable markings on polymer surfaces and improve the adhesion of labels and coatings. These systems are ideal for all types of thermoformed and thermoset plastics.

Enercon Industries Corporation, headquartered in Menomonee Falls, WI, is a major manufacturer of equipment for the plastics and packaging industries. The company supplies custom built corona, flame and atmospheric plasma treating systems, and 3D plasma treaters for the plastics and rubber industries.
