Corona Treatment
The purpose of corona treatment is to optimize the adhesion properties on polymer-based materials. The low surface energy of polymer-based substrates often leads to poor adhesion of inks, glues and coatings which by nature present significantly high surface energies.

To obtain optimum adhesion, it is crucial that the surface energy of the substrate is equal or higher than the surface energy of the material to be applied to the polymer.

Plasma Treatment
Plasma surface treatment technology offers innovative solutions to adhesion and wetting problems in many industries. Component preparation is an important step prior to bonding, painting, varnishing and coating processes. Plasma treatment provides an economical solution for the cleaning and activation of component surfaces before further processing. Plasma surface treatment improves wettability and adhesion of ink, glues and coatings on many different surfaces.

Plasma surface treatment provides an economical solution for the cleaning and activation of complex surfaces before further processing. This is especially true for profiles with complex surfaces that cannot be treated using regular corona treatment mechanisms.

Tantec offers a product line of standard Corona and Plasma Treaters, as well as Customized Treaters to suit any process line.
