Polymers Laminates Adhesives Coatings & Extrusions. All Of These Can Benefit In Some Way From Flame Treatment, 2005 EuroPLACE Conference
Polarisation of a substrate can greatly improve its adhesion qualities. Applying a flame to
a continues web does exactly this and if applied prior to further applications such as
lamination, inks or adhesives enhances bonding.
Flame treatment is widely used in a number of applications from the “Pre-treatment” of
carton board before lamination to the “Post-treatment” of film such as prior to special
coatings such as low adhesive backings.
