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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
Plasma is perfect for the surface cleaning of metals. The cleaning of metals removes surface oxidation and organic contaminants at a microscopic level and is typically used as a final, ultrafine cleaning process for applications requiring cleanliness at a molecular level. It is important to note that plasma cleaning does not replace wet chemical cleaning […]
