Atmospheric plasma treaters are highly effective at treating polymer films, nonwovens, textiles, foams, and other materials which are processed in a roll to roll web format. Plasma technology is optimized for specific industry applications with specific gas chemistries and are ideal for applications that require high and long lasting treatment levels that would be otherwise impossible. The content below shares insights on the use of atmospheric plasma for web processes in a variety of industries.
Label Adhesion Improves with Flame and Plasma Treatment
When packagers are faced with label adhesion challenges flame and plasma surface treaters are often used to increase bond strength. Label adhesion problems occur because many of the container, lid and cap materials used in packaging are chemically inert and non receptive to bonding with glue.
