In-line surface treatment technologies are used in the plastics industry to clean, micro-etch and functionalize surfaces to promote adhesion, improve quality and increase productivity. For some applications surface treatment is a requirement for adhesion success, for others it eliminates the need for expensive & specialty coating formulations, and in all cases it provides a safeguard against materials which may exhibit inconsistent surface energy. Examples are found in the automotive, medical, decorating, marking, assembly, film extruding & converting, folding carton, pipe, cable and other markets where surfaces need assistance in bonding with coatings. This paper will share laboratory trial data on the impact of surface treatment on a variety of materials with results measured in dyne level, polarity and surface free energy. It also addresses adhesion basics, how to select the right technology for your application, and how to implement blown arc air plasma, blown ion air plasma, variable chemistry plasma and high velocity flame plasma treaters for optimum results.

The flexible packaging industry, despite the stillebbing recessionary downturn, continues to experience a technological revolution aimed at value-adding graphics, increasing consumer motivation, and delivering sustainable solutions for a host of challenges throughout the manufacturing and distribution chain. High performance package configurations and new printing technologies continue to drive packaging into existing as well as completely new markets. Statistically, the Freedonia Group forecasts revenues for the US commercial printing industry will reach $82 billion in 2011 and that US demand for printing inks will grow 1.8% annually to reach $4.8 billion by 2013. And although the global packaging industry is valued at a burgeoning $450 billion, the emerging markets of China and India for example convert only about 7% of all their packaging by aqueous-based printing processes. The market growth opportunities for flexible package printing are therefore vast. As new state-of-the-art flexible packaging technology is installed in these markets and with processing costs under pressure to enable these technologies to ramp-up in 2011, surface pre-treatment technologies must become a key enabler relative to higher processing speed, wider widths, and requirements on inks and coatings to transfer and adhere to substrates at these speeds and widths. This paper presents evidence of new flexible packaging print performance opportunities using a new, revolutionary atmospheric plasma treatment (APT) technology.

How well do you understand the relationship between your films and your corona treater? A treatment level of 2.0 watt density yields very different results on PET compared to Polypropylene. And, a nominal change in watt density can produce unexpected results. This paper looks at the relationship between various films and watt densities. Recognizing that each film has it own signature relationship with a corona treater will help converters control surface energy and improve adhesion.

Atmospheric plasma treatments optimize the adhesion properties of insulation materials by raising surface polarity. Wire and cable insulation is typically made from thermoplastics, thermosets or fibrous coatings such as fiberglass and fiber-braiding. Unfortunately for manufacturers, inks and coatings do not print or bond well to most of these materials when using standard techniques. Manufacturers need to understand the importance of a materials surface energy. In fact, how well an ink or coating adheres to insulation depends a great deal on whether it is polar, low-polarity or nonpolar. Polar surfaces have a positive or negative charge, and they adhere best to polar inks and coatings. This is because, when polar materials are brought together, a strong dispersive force is created across the entire interface. Traditionally, several methods have been used to modify insulation and improve its printability. These include the application of low-pressure plasma or chemical primers; and exposure to infrared or ultraviolet light, ozone, ion beams, and gamma and X-rays.

Society of Plastics Engineers - Flexible Packaging Conference, FlexPackCon 2014 | Year: 2014

Flexographic ink systems cover a wide gamut - solvent- based, water-based, and ultraviolet-light cured. These system categories will include solvents, colorants, resins, additives, oligomers, monomers and other unique compounds. Each ink component influences the viscosity and surface energy of the ink and its relative adhesion to various substrates at different press speeds. Surface energy is the common denominator between ink and substrate, quantifying the disruption of intermolecular bonds that occurs when a surface is created and interfaced with. This presentation will discuss the components and viscosity impacts of inks, define the ideal surface energy calibrations between the different flexo ink systems and various substrates, explore ink-to- surface bonding dynamics, and provide surface treatment recommendations.

Automotive plastics with a low polarity, such as PE, PP, TPO, POM, PUR and PTFE typically require surface treatment when decoration is required. Metallic surfaces may also require cleaning to remove low molecular weight organic materials prior to decoration. Once the above-mentioned interior and exterior grades of substrate surfaces are cleaned and activated, printing, gluing and painting are possible without the use of adhesion-promoting primers. This paper describes the latest innovations in three-dimensional surface treating technology for plastics finishing which address the need to advance adhesion properties, increase product quality, and achieve environmental objectives within the automotive industry. These innovations include advanced thermal and non-thermal discharge treatment processes for raising the polarity of surfaces to be painted, bonded, decorated, laminated, printed, or to have tape applied.

International Polyolefins Conference 2011: Evolving Technology for the Global Economy | Year: 2011

The flexible packaging industry, despite the still-ebbing recessionary downturn, continues to experience a technological revolution aimed at value-adding graphics, increasing consumer motivation, and delivering sustainable solutions for a host of challenges throughout the polyolefins manufacturing, conversion and distribution chain. High performance polyolefin package configurations and new flexible packaging converting technologies continue to drive flexible packaging into existing as well as completely new markets. Flexible packaging in the so-called BRIC countries was valued at $10 billion in 2007 and is expected to grow by 9.2% per annum to reach $17.7 billion by 2013. Because the global packaging industry is valued at a burgeoning $450 billion, the emerging BRIC markets, and specifically those of China and India, offer vast growth opportunities in polyolefin-based flexible packaging. As new state-of-the-art flexible packaging technology is installed in these markets and with processing costs under pressure to enable flexography to ramp-up in 2011, surface pre-treatment technologies must become a key enabler relative to higher processing speed, wider widths, and requirements on inks and coatings to transfer and adhere to polyolefin substrates at these speeds and widths. This paper presents evidence of new polyolefin-based flexible packaging print performance opportunities using new atmospheric plasma treatment (APT) technology.

The flexible packaging industry, despite the still-ebbing economy, continues to experience a technological revolution aimed at value-adding graphics, increasing consumer motivation, and delivering sustainable solutions for a host of challenges throughout the manufacturing and distribution chain. High performance package configurations and new printing technologies (notably flexo) continue to drive packaging into existing as well as completely new markets. Statistically, the U.S. flexible packaging industry is expected to experience annual sales revenue growth of 8.1 percent in 2011 according to the Flexible Packaging Association. The Freedonia Group forecasts revenues for the US commercial printing industry will reach $82 billion in 2011 and that US demand for printing inks will grow 1.8% annually to reach $4.8 billion by 2013. And although the global packaging industry is valued at a burgeoning $450 billion, the emerging markets of China and India for example convert only about 7% of all their packaging by the flexographic process. The market growth opportunities for flexographically-printed flexible packaging are therefore vast. As new state-of-the-art package printing technology is installed in these markets and with processing costs under pressure to enable these processes to ramp-up in 2011, surface pretreatment technologies must become a key enabler relative to higher processing speed, wider widths, and requirements on inks and coatings to transfer and adhere to substrates at these speeds and widths. This paper presents evidence of new flexible packaging print performance opportunities using new atmospheric plasma treatment (APT) technology.
