Corona Treatment Systems – Overcoming the Effects of Heat and Humidity

As you know, moisture is an enemy of electronic components. Consequently, with summer’s high heat and humidity, even the best corona treatment equipment will benefit from some simple maintenance. Ozone is a by-product of corona treatment and is easily handled with 3DT’s robust ozone exhaust and filtration equipment. However, in extremely hot and humid conditions […]

Maximizing Performance/Minimizing Downtime with Modular Generator Technology

 The advantages of modular generators for corona and plasma treatment stations Corona stations are available in all sizes depending on the application- from 10 inch narrow web lines to wide coating machines and BOPP/BOPET lines of up to 10 meters. Usually, the high frequency high voltage that is needed to power the corona process is […]

Gentle Plasma – Surface Treatment for Sensitive Materials

The pre-treatment of  sensitive materials is a challenge for many converters. Plasma treatment is recommended in these cases.  Improved adhesion attained through corona pre-treatment depends largely on choosing the correct corona dosage – the quotient of power and web speed at a given working width. In practice, the process or the material usually determine the […]

LTC – Laboratory Table Corona

Designing a printing or coating process is a tricky thing. Not only during specification of new lines, but even in existing production lines, the coatings and inks always need to be matched to the surface tension of the substrate. Typically, a substrate is treated with corona, increasing the surface tension of the substrate and, thereby, […]
