Backside Treatment Symptoms and Remedies
The symptoms that identify backside treatment are problems associated with web handling. The most common is blocking. The term blocking refers to the attraction of a treated surface adhering to the backside of the material when wound onto a roll. This becomes evident in unwinding, resulting in a separation or delamination of the web.
