Product category: Surface pretreatment equipment


Flame treatment of plastics encompasses an infinite range of extruded or moulded products. Different applications are covered within this market sector including: bottles, containers, moldings, components, extruded pipes and cable covers, etc. Flame treatment can be utilized to promote the adhesion of labels or print enhancing product quality. This is most beneficial for printing and labeling and insuring that there is no damage to such applications from transit or handling of the product ensuring a products visual integrity and "sale ability" is intact when reaching the supermarket shelf.

The laminated carton is proving popular packaging technology, due to its flexibility as a packaging solution and also as an environmentally friendly design with materials coming from renewable resources. Aerogen`s flame treating technology allows for the conditioning of the paper / carton board which prepares its adhesion qualities prior to lamination. Such enhanced adhesion contributes to a product which is used for the storage of liquids such as milk and fruit juices.


Enhanced Carton Integrity
Prevents De-Lamination
Eliminates Pin Holes in Laminate - Thus Preventing Cross Contamination
Enhanced Adhesion

Main Applications

Paper and Carton Board
Extrusion Coating PE or Nylon

Main Advantages

Increased Bonding of Laminate to Board
100% Fibre Tear Result
No Ozone Emissions or Hazardous By-Products

Films such as BOPP can benefit from flame treatment where the final coating requirements demand high adhesion qualities in the substrate that other methods of surface treatment cannot offer. Such examples are high performance adhesive tapes requiring a low adhesive coating application on the non-sticky side of the film. The flame enhances the adhesion of the film thus allowing for low adhesion coating to be applied that would otherwise not be compatible.
