The packaging industry can no longer get by without physical surface pretreatment. It’s become a necessary step in extruding plastic films and using non-polar materials such as polypropylene, polyethylene and recycled materials.

Openair® Plasma is an especially effective tool in providing this pretreatment. Plasma treatment is a key surface modification technology that is critical to manufacturing cost-effective and environmentally responsible advanced composite materials.

Plasma treatment for plastic packaging is extremely effective:

  • Openair® Plasma surface modification technologies can achieve plastic activation at the highest level. It is not unusual to reach surface tensions of more than 72 mN/m.
  • Extremely long-lasting plasma activation increases storage life and facilitates subsequent processing up to 12 months later.
  • New material composites are only possible using targeted surface functionalization with Openair® Plasma.
  • Openair® Plasma treatment ensures targeted, exclusively single-sided surface pretreatment of plastic films.
