Plasma and corona treatment do very similar things to the surface of a material, all of which is permanent and will last the life of the part. The real question is, how long does plasma and corona treatment remain useful and available to use? Here at Tantec, we find out! What does plasma and corona […]
Printing on to foam boards or solid sheets is commonplace for signs, building supplies and general manufacturing around the UK and Ireland. Here at Tantec UK & Ireland take a look at how Corona is effective in the treatment of foam and boards. These boards are often made from PVC, polyurethane or other polymers that […]
Plasma and corona systems are usually the green and cost-effective way of pre-treating a surface to improve adhesion. This might be in the medical sector where the safety-critical print is being adhered to a polymer syringe, or automotive where foam or leather is being bonded onto a moulded plastic interior part. In this blog we’ll […]
For this month’s blog, we take a look at how Tantec UK & Ireland and their Corona technologies can improve the production process of plastic lenses. Plastic materials for ophthalmic lenses have seen continual developments, and for this reason, have gradually replaced glass materials. Today, most corrective lenses are made of thermoplastic and thermosetting resins […]
For many people, the garage door is the second entrance to the home. Before you can walk through your front door, you park your car in the garage, and that is where the garage door becomes the focus. You, obviously, want it to be functional. And it should fit the overall style of your home. […]
It is often necessary to coat glass sheets as part of the manufacturing process. For liquid adhesives, glues, coatings or inks to adhere to the surface of molded or extruded plastics, increasing surface energy will improve surface wettability, thereby promoting stronger adhesion. In our latest blog, we take a look at how corona is effective […]
For over 70 years, plasma and corona surface treatment systems have played an increasingly critical role in the manufacture of high-quality products within various high-technology industries around the world – none more so than the medical device sector.
Corona treatment is an established, widely-used surface treatment process utilised in engineering applications across the world. The technology, which primes materials using a high-frequency, high-voltage discharge, is used to improve wettability and adhesion, thus improving the receptiveness of the surface to adhesives, inks and coatings.
