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, [...]

Corona vs. Plasma Treatment

One very common question about electrical surface treatment is, “What is the difference between corona and plasma treatment?” With a follow up question, “What best fits my application?” Both corona and plasma treatment increase the surface energy of numerous materials improving the adhesion of inks, adhesives, coatings and other agents. But, they both have unique [...]
