In-line treatment of Automotive Sealing Products

Automotive Sealing Products

Top quality adhesion of printing inks, adhesives or coatings on polymer  materials, such as PE, PP, PS, EPDM-rubber and other substrates, is a  common requirement throughout the plastic and rubber processing industry. Tantec takes a look into automotive sealing products. All polymer materials exhibit by nature a low surface energy, resulting in poor adhesion and wetting […]

What is surface energy?

Surface Energy is the relative measurement of energy found at the surface (surprisingly) of a solid (it is usually only used to describe solids – Surface Tension is most commonly used for the same phenomenon of liquids). Whilst the atoms in the ‘bulk’ of the material are relatively stable, with a balanced set of bonds […]
