Standard and Customised Corona Treaters. The purpose of surface treatment of polymer based materials is to increase surface wettability through electrical discharge. The low surface energy of polymer based substrates often leads to poor adhesion of inks, glues and coatings.
To obtain optimum adhesion, it is necessary to increase the surface energy of the substrate to just above that of the material to be applied. Surface treatment with corona treatment, results in improved surface adhesion properties.
The CableTEC is a unique and cost effective method for modifying polymer cable insulations (PE, PP, and PTFE), resulting in adhesion property optimization of printing inks and coatings onto the cable. The in-line treating system has been specifically designed by Tantec, to facilitate easy installation to new or existing production lines. A complete system includes; high frequency generator, high voltage transformer, air-cooled electrodes, ozone filter and a customized stand alone or bench-top treating station. CableTEC conforms to CE regulations and carries the CE-marking.
