Corona Treater 101

Nov 9th, 2011 | By | Category: Did you know?

A new Corona treater 101 posting does a nice job of explaining that there are differences between the effectiveness of tretament created by each corona treater configuration. The process of generating corona is essentially the same for all corona treaters. Corona is ionized air created by discharging high frequency high voltage energy across a metal or insulated electrode. This electrode […]

Corona Treaters for Film Converting

Oct 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Did you know?

Corona treaters are the most commonly used surface treating technology in the film converting industry. Corona treating is very efficient at raising the surface energy of substrates to enable improved adhesion on a variety of non-porous films. Corona is similar to plasma surface treating in that each rely on the electrical ionization of a gas. Plasma creates a […]
