Product Announcement from Tantec EST, Inc.
Two common applications for pre-treatment of automotive EPDM-profiles with Corona or Plasma are prior to flocking and slop-coating. In the flocking process, corona or plasma surface treatment is necessary to achieve a strong bond between the rubber and the adhesive used to attach the flock. For slip-coating it is necessary to treat prior to the spray process, to achieve good wettability and optimum adhesion properties of the coating.
ProfileTEC eliminates the need for expensive primers, hazardous chemical treatments or outdated abrasive brushing. The treatment achieved through corona discharge remains cost-effective without creating a threat to our environment.
Each Tantec Corona or Plasma Surface Treatment System is manufactured to suit individual customer requirements and is designed for treatment of conductive solid rubber, non-conductive sponge or a combination of both types of material. the free-standing systems are self-contained and offer 360o treatment at line speeds up to 25 m/min.
