Flame treatment is a surface activation treatment process used to chemically modify a surface for better adhesion. This process is typically used on low energy surfaces that can be difficult to adhere to, such as plastics and composites.
The treatment is also very gentle, posing low risk to the material. Flame treatment uses a carefully controlled blend of natural gas and air to create a hot, oxygen rich plasma. First, the heat removes contaminants. Then, after contaminant removal, the oxygen rich plasma activates the surface by partial oxidation. The result is a clean, high energy surface that is an excellent state for printing, painting, coating, or bonding.
Activating the surface Specifically in the plastic coating field, but also in that of adhesive application, prior treatment of the surface with a flame is often required. We choose the optimal solution for you depending on the materials to be treated and the existing surface tension.
