It generates a blown-arc discharge that works well for high line speeds and demanding applications. Air-plasma treatment eliminates the need for chemical priming and etching processes ordinarily needed for improving surface adhesion for printing, painting, coating, bonding, and labeling applications. The surface treater handles 3D objects, areas of 2D plastics, and other materials without requiring a grounding element. This surface treatment facilitates high-quality printing on plastic parts, allows clear readable markings on polymer surfaces, and improves the adhesion of labels and coatings.
