More than 40% of the packaging used in the food industry is made from plastics – ranging from PE, PP, PET to new, complex composite materials and recyclables.
The ability to reliably process non-polar surfaces is a major challenge for packaging manufacturers.
The plasma process offers a wealth of possibilities for the pretreatment of plastics. Externally: reliable labeling and printing at high speeds using solvent-free inks and adhesives. Internally: creating barrier layers and sterilizing food packaging prior to filling.
With hundreds of proven applications and virtually unlimited potential, atmospheric plasma is already the preferred method of treatment for many packaging manufacturers.
