Here at Tantec UK & Ireland, we ask, What are the benefits of using plasma over primers and chemical treatments? Plasma is a highly-popular form of surface treatment used to activate and clean. It is commonly used to treat a variety of materials including plastics, metals and glass. It provides stronger, more repeatable bonding, giving […]
Manufacturers across the globe are looking for innovative methods to improve the quality of their product offerings and to give customers exactly what they are looking for. Not least in the automotive industry where they are incorporating different manufacturing techniques to get the best product offerings. Since 2013, the UK automotive industry has been on […]
Plasma and Corona Treatments change the very top surface of a material, introducing the right chemistry, perfect for improving adhesion of tapes, glue, printing inks and other processes such as wetting of liquids.
What are the advantages of surface treatment? We’re not being biased when we say there are actually quite a few. Enough, in fact, for the global surface treatment market to increase in value to an astounding $19bn by 2027; a rapid rise from the $12.76bn market value set in 2019. More and more manufacturers are […]
Surface treatments are an essential part of many manufacturing processes. A large number of products made by industries around the world often bond different materials together, such as metal to plastic. Alternatively, others require long-lasting, high-quality printing on a plastic surface. In order to achieve this, the materials used often need to be contaminant-free to […]
Tantec UK’s experts recently undertook an experiment to achieve Polypropylene (PP) bonding using Polyurethane Adhesive SikaForce 803 with different atmospheric plasma treatment settings.
Plasma treatment is a highly-popular form of surface treatment used to activate, clean, coat or etch material surfaces. It is commonly used to treat a variety of materials including plastics, metals and glass.
Simply put, a surface treatment is a process applied to the surface of a material to make it better in some way. This could be from a performance perspective, such as improving adhesion and surface wetting characteristics.
Commonly used plastic materials such as polypropylene have a very low Surface Energy which essentially makes them non stick in nature. Here at Tantec Uk & Ireland we describe how plasma and corona surface treatments enhance the bonding of plastics.
Plasma surface treatment is just one of many different surface treatment solutions available to prepare or optimise substrates for bonding, printing or coating. Here at Tantec UK & Ireland we give our top 5 reasons to choose plasma over alternative processes: 1. Plasma Surface Treatment is a high-performance process Plasma surface treatment can offer greater […]
