Our laboratory is available to customers doing constant research on materials and production processes to perform tests:
- on the surfaces of plastic and metallized films, foil, sheets, plastic-coated paper, labels (corona treatment)
- on three-dimensional plastic objects and small plastic objects, such as profiles, sections, PEX pipes, electrical and special cables, gaskets and small components, metal surfaces that must be cleaned before adhesion (plasma treatment).
The tests help to compare the results obtained by adopting the two solutions to choose the most appropriate surface treatment for the material characteristics.
This integrated system for carrying out tests makes it possible to reduce time and accurately determine treatment parameters even in the most complex applications.
Corona treatment testing
The laboratory performs corona treatment tests on samples sent by customers in A4 format. The test involves simulating the working conditions of the production line, considering the working speed, type and number of electrodes and rollers, etc.
Plasma treatment testing
To improve the reliability of plasma treatment tests, we use a collaborative robot. The robot may be programmed to move plasma over the entire surface of the sample to be treated, whatever the shape and size of the area to be treated. The automatic movement of the system allows the plasma discharge to be directed onto the material, with speed and power characteristics calculated according to the needs of the application for which the treatment is intended.
Check the effectiveness of Corona and Plasma treatment
The lab tests the effectiveness of treatment testing by means of the Surface Tension Measurement Kit.
Surface tension is measured before and after the corona and plasma treatment tests to determine the effectiveness of the two treatments on the tested surface.
