Ozone is generated during any high-voltage, high-frequency discharge. The ozone is easily neutralised using standard ozone filter systems.
The improved adhesion strength can easily be measured either through contact-angle measurement or by using dyne inks. Dyne inks are available from Tantec. Look for the DyneTEC.
The mN/m level (or dyne level) reflects the surface wettability – the higher the mN/m level, the better the wettability/adhesion. As reference de-ionised water is 73mN/m at 20oC. (mN/m is mili Newton per Meter)
Tantec specialises in the development and manufacture of both standard and customised corona treatment equipment for almost any given application. (list of common applications)
In most cases, the corona equipment is integrated into the existing production equipment.
Almost all commonly used base materials are easily treated. The material list includes mateials such as :
|Cross Linked Polymers||PC||ABS||PS|
Yes. Metal surfaces can be treated by using special insulated electrodes or the PlasmaTEC treatment nozzles. Treatment of Metal surfaces is often a matter of both cleaning and surface activation. Often Stainless steel surfaces are treated with either Ceramic Corona Electrodes or PlasmaTEC nozzles to ensure max. wettability and cleaning before bonding etc.
