Applications

In Wire & Cable industry with increase in technology, Wire & Cable industries runs machines at High Speed, So that they can increase the Production and achieve economic of scale.

At such a high speed there is always a problem of wettability and adhesion, ink gets peel off, with Plasma Treater we ensure there is wettability and proper adhesion, so that ink doesnot get peel off at High Speed.

Also material such as HDPE & LDPE, even at Low speed there is Problem of wettability and Adhesion, we had designed Atmospheric Plasma Treater to solve the long run problem of wire & cable industries to ensure there is wettablity and adhesion, so that there is proper bonding between inks & polymer.

Eltech plasma surface treatment of plastic to enhance adhesion before inkjet printing.

Generally, plastics have chemically inert and nonporous surfaces with low surface tensions. This makes them non-receptive to bonding with inks, adhesives, coatings, and other substrates. Plasma Treater improves the adhesion of plastics.

Polyethylene and polypropylene for example have very low surface energy. Pretreatment of these and other engineered plastics improves bonding prior to printing, coating, and laminating. The best type of surface treater for your application will depend on several variables such as Line Speed, Material & Treatment width.

Using plasma treatment to improve the adhesive bond strength of folding cartons produces remarkable results.Converters who integrate this technology into their lines have seen improvements in both hot-melt and cold-glue adhesive performance. plasma technology to clean, etch and functionalize surfaces of folding cartons. These materials include: polycoated, polybacked, virgin kraft board, specially coated materials, UV lacquered surfaces and recyclable materials.

Plasma surface treatment in pre-gluing machines 

Today carton packaging is made from sheets that are printed, finished, cut, and folded in a folding machine and usually glued by the manufacturer (pre-gluing). This is accomplished on high-performance pre-gluing machines with speeds up to 600 m/min. The glue that is used, cold glue, adheres without difficulty directly on bare paperboard material, but if that material already has a quality finish (such as a UV coating or laminated film), the places that will later be glued usually need to be roughened using an elaborate mechanical process (mechanical miller, sandpaper, brushes) in separate machinery. Otherwise, those spots must be masked before sealing.

Integrating Plasma technology significantly simplifies the process. Plasma jets are installed directly in high-speed pre-gluing machines where they pretreat the folding carton in the glue seam areas. The resulting increase in surface tension is enough to dramatically increase adhesion capacity; the cold glue that is generally used bonds regardless of the coating, varnish or surface sealing.

In Pipes & Tubes industries, HDPE & LDPE material has very low dyne level, which has to be treated before Ink jet printing, which will help in proper bonding between ink and substrate.

Plasma Treater increases the surface energy of the substrate, clean it and oxidize the surface to improve the dyne level of the substrate.
