iPLASMA for Coating
‘Coating’ is a generic term used for many different types of coatings and primers and for several different types of applications. These include coating the material in preparation for other converting processes, or coating as the final finish, after other converting processes have been completed.
All coatings share common drawbacks: they are expensive to apply and require an intensive drying process. These create high production costs, and the long web path through the machine results in a large amount of waste at every job change.
iPlasma offers alternative solutions to each of these. It can work as a gas primer, to prepare the surface for subsequent converting processes, or make the actual coatings on its own – or any variation these. The benefits of IPlasma include thinner coatings, a thinner final product, excellent wettability, gas-priming of all polymer materials, lower running costs, and instant drying of the coating, which results in less waste.
