Corona Surface Treatment – the What, Why, and How
Jan Eisby, CSO of Danish pioneers Vetaphone, explains the background to a much used but...
The Corona Surface Treatment is essential in converting processes.
In today’s highly competitive retail environment, only the best quality image and presentation is acceptable for brand owners looking to influence consumer choice. How good a product looks on the shelf is a primary key to its success, so the quality of packaging is all important.
If, as a packaging converter, you are looking to process any non-absorbent substrate, like film, foil, or metallised paper and board, you will need to surface treat it first to make sure that adhesion is secure. This applies if you are using inks, varnishes and lacquers, lamination, or other converting techniques where a consistently high-quality finish is essential.
Here at Vetaphone, we have two options that will fulfil all of your requirements. For the majority of applications Corona treatment is the answer. Pioneered by us in the 1950s we have unparalleled knowledge and expertise in Corona treating a wide variety of substrates to guarantee surface adhesion, whether on untreated material, or stock that has been pre-treated but requires a boost to ensure the correct dyne level is achieved before processing.
For some of today’s more complex substrates, where the surface chemistry requires an alternative process, we offer Plasma treatment that uses a controlled environment and inert gas to achieve a higher dyne level.
We knew exactly what we needed – Vetaphone listened and responded in the same way that we do with our customers – and, they were the only manufacturer to offer a performance and dyne level guarantee on the material we use. That shows real confidence in your product.SPECIALITY PRINTING / MR FRANCIS POIRER, SENIOR VP OPERATIONS
As demand continues to evolve and new substrates enter the market, Vetaphone systems allow us to run many more types of films and meet our ever-growing customer needs. The fine control offered by Vetaphone Corona technology plays an important part in helping us deliver improved printing and coating quality, and stronger lamination strength, thus bolstering our position in demanding technologies such as automotive and conductive films markets.TRANSCONTINENTAL ADVANCED COATINGS / MR GEORG ROSE, VICE PRESIDENT, GLOBAL SALES & MARKETING

We operate 78 lines here on a 24/7 basis, so reliable technology is essential. Our experience with Vetaphone equipment has been outstanding. It is easy to use, robust, and excellent value for money. It also takes away one of the production variables.CEDO SP. Z O. O. / MR ANDRZEJ MAJEWSKI, SITE DIRECTOR
We see Vetaphone as the market leader and re presently investigating ways to fully integrate its technology within our machine lines. This will save costly space on the production floor, and improve functionality for the operator. We would do this only with a supplier whose technology matches our own in terms of quality and reliability.DAE KWANG / MR TAE SIK BAE, PRESIDENT
Our business is very specialized, with customers placing high emphasis on quality and reliability, while at the same time looking for turnkey solutions. In these circumstances it is vital that the integrity of our sub suppliers’ technology matches that of our own products. In Vetaphone we have found an excellent synergy that dovetails with our own rigorous quality control.NEW ERA CONVERTING (US) (OEM) / MR BOB PASQUALE, PRESIDENT
We have enjoyed good on-site training and after-sales support from Vetaphone, but most of all we are working with a supplier that provides a service not just a product. They were key to the smooth installation process and helped with UL accreditation. It was a real bonus for us to join forces with them and it surely speaks volumes for their commitment to the US market.TRANSCONTINENTAL ADVANCED COATINGS / STEPHEN BARNETTE, PROCESS ENGINEER
Many suppliers offer only standard products, but with Vetaphone we have been able to refine specification to suit our exact requirements. We also appreciate the after sales support and programme of continuous improvement from which we have benefitted over the years with various upgrades.CEDO SP. Z O.
