The trend in the packaging industry is toward continuously rising design and quality requirements. Manufacturers count more and more on the appeal of finishes like high-gloss printing, soft-touch coatings, or hologram printing to attract consumers. And display and window packaging often involve special combinations of materials.

These materials must be joined to each other cost effectively, at high speeds, and most of all reliably. This requires an especially robust, high-performance pretreatment process: Openair® Plasma.

When integrated inline, plasma activation creates ideal surface properties for subsequent process steps, such as gluing, printing or laminating.

Particular advantages of Openair® Plasma technology in manufacturing carton packaging:

  • Makes high processing speeds possible
  • No open flames mean greater process safety.
  • Robust, durable technology
  • Simple process monitoring
  • Cost effective
