A combination of legislation and public pressure is driving commerce to address the issue of pollution, and in the case of packaging this manifests itself in the replacement of solvent-based adhesives, inks, and coatings with their water-based equivalents.
But, with new materials being developed for commercial applications, traditional surface treatment is often proving incapable of generating the level of surface energy required, owing to the complex chemical composition of the substrate.
The solution is plasma surface treatment, which in its latest configuration offers a higher level of sustainable surface tension that takes it beyond the capability of corona. This is essential in a fast-developing sector of the packaging market because it offers viable and cost-effective water-based alternatives to the traditional solvent-based primers.
