Surface Treatment for Foam, Glass, Plastic Sheets, and Corrugated Material

Linear Plasma - applications

Yes, thick, bulky, rigid, and uneven items can be surface treated with atmospheric plasma and corona treatment yielding highly improved surface adhesion.

Typically, foam, glass, plastic sheets and corrugated materials have poor wettability and are difficult to manage for surface treatment. Some examples of the challenges are:

  • Precut plastic sheets are resistant to media and require surface treatment prior to finishing applications.
  • The properties of foam cause numerous bonding challenges, such as applying adhesives.
  • Glass often needs micro cleaning prior to painting, printing or coating.
  • Due to their material make up and uneven surfaces, corrugated plastic boards and siding resist post-processing applications.

3DT’s systems overcome these difficulties with proven technology and thoughtful engineering. High-performing machinery, state of the art technology, and dependable production are possible with 3DT. Our corona and plasma systems greatly increase the bonding of inks, coatings, and adhesives to substrates. The systems below, manufactured by 3DT and SOFTAL, are designed for these challenges!

3DT's corona system for treating small panels and sheets.

PolyDyne Conveyor System

3DT’s versatile PolyDyne Conveyor System is specifically designed for corona treating sheets of plastic and glass panels 2-3 mm thick and 450-760 mm wide. It is well-suited for production lines or manual treating stations for simple, recipe-based operation that produces consistent results.

Features:

  • PolyDyne Pro corona generator
  • Variable speed belt drive with rugged silicone belt
  • Control panel with HMI, start/stop
  • Smart operation with feedback and downloadable operation log
  • Adjustable corona discharge levels
  • Electrode treating assembly
  • Anodized aluminum framework on casters

Sheet Treating Systems for Large Sheets and Panels

3DT’s Sheet Treating Systems uses corona technology to increase surface energy and thereby creating strong bonds between substrates and inks, laminates, coatings and adhesives. This system can be set inline prior to printing or lamination, or used as a free-standing, manual system. Sheets, at a maximum of 62”, are placed on the conveyor, and pass under a highly energized corona field. A built-in sensor automatically tells the system when to turn on and off treatment. A process-controlled interface delivers uniform, dependable and repeatable surface treatment.

3DT offers a variety of sheet treating systems that can be customized for your application. See the example below and to the right of a system designed to corona treat 4 foot wide, rigid panels.

Linear Plasma Treating Station

SOFTAL has created this specialty system for surface treatment of thick and sensitive materials up to 2 meters wide, such as plates, glass, extruded hollow board, foam, honeycombed material and printed electronics. SOFTAL’s Linear Plasma system can be configured to produce potential-free treatment, preventing damage to delicate substrates and embedded electric circuits.
