When printing on surfaces, optimal print adhesion and perfect print quality are requirements for successful and cost-effective production
The steadily increasing customer requirements for printing, especially for plastics, also require a consistent high quality of the print so that high-quality and long-term stable printing can take place.
The surface properties of polyolefins such as PP, PE with their inherently very low surface energies are the reason that subsequent adhesive processes such as printing and marking are a challenge.
Plastics such as PVC, PU, PC as well as metals and glass, often need optimization and homogenization of their adhesive properties before printing for a perfect print image.
Classic pretreatment processes, such as priming or flame treatment, are often associated with complex implementation and handling, high running costs for consumption and storage, high health and environmental requirements and difficult process control.
