Inline Corona Treatment for LSE Substrates
Surface treatments modify the surface of low surface energy (LSE) substrates during the die-cutting process to allow application of pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) to materials which have an inherent LSE that were previously incompatible with PSA.
Inline Corona Treatment increases the surface energy dyne level of LSE materials such as foams, composites, acrylics, films and PP by up to 3 times.
This highly effective treatment allows the lamination of conventional PSA’s onto LSE substrates that would otherwise not be available, without any reduction in manufacturing speeds, eliminating the need for high cost chemical surface preparation and specialist adhesives.
Using this surface modification during the die cutting process and prior to bonding, coating, laminating or sealing broadens the range of adhesive tapes and substrates that are compatible with LSE materials previously unsuitable for the same application.
Particularly important during the manufacture of medical components, devices and equipment, enabling Material Scientists to utilise cleaner materials and helping to replace substrates such as vinyl and latex. With greater design flexibility, we are able to support our clients in the development of tomorrows technology.
