At this year’s K trade fair in Düsseldorf, the kalwar group, together with Evonik’s Silanes Business Line, is presenting new functionalisation perspectives using the calvasol® process.
Fresh crunchy food looks appetising, but the appearance can be marred by condensation building up inside the plastic wrap. kalwar innovative calvasol® functionalisation systems are a logical advancement of calvatron® surface technology, and not only deliver the necessary long-term adhesion but also solve the antifog problem. Appearance counts when buying something, and brightly coloured fruit, as demonstrated by the exhibit at stand B28 in hall 6
, provides the stronger arguments.
This highly effective and cost-efficient coating process is eco-friendly, significantly lowers production costs and provides a large choice of interesting functionalities. calvasol® technology not only replaces established production methods, but allows completely new products to be manufactured through the use of an intelligent combination. calvasol® also enables release and antiblock effects to be developed in close cooperation with the customer.
Further highlights are presented by the latest generations of calvasmart® and calvatron® corona systems, for activating high-quality foils, and the individual calvapro® plascomized corona and plasma systems, for treating the surface of three-dimensional plastic products.
plascomized systems are individually planned for each customer and permit extremely short cycle times of <30 seconds in conjunction with sophisticated quality surveillance.
In addition, the calvapro® plasmatunnel presents a unique plasma technology which highly activates the surfaces of three-dimensional plastic substrates, such as complete instrument panels or plastic containers, in just one throughput process.
