Enercon’s Plasma3 Improves Printing on Tyvek

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI – Recent customer trials confirm Enercon’s Plasma3™ atmospheric plasma surface treater improves printing on a wide variety of materials used in the medical industry including Tyvek®. The unique technology is able to raise surface energy to improve ink adhesion while leaving physical, mechanical and barrier surface properties intact.

Atmospheric plasma treatment provides improved adhesion benefits without the risk of pinholing that can occur with traditional surface treatment methods. Improvements for a variety of water based printing techniques have been observed. However the ability for Plasma3™ to promote printing results with photoelectric inks used with digital presses (such as Hewlett Packard’s Indigo™) is recognized as a break-through development.

Enercon’s atmospheric plasma systems may be configured in a variety of delivery systems for use with webs, sheets and dimensional objects.

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 bare-roll, covered-roll and universal roll corona treating systems, atmospheric plasma treating systems, flame systems, 3D surface treaters and 3D plasma treaters for the plastics and rubber industries.
