Stronger Bonds with Plasma Treatment
In the world of adhesive tape application, achieving a strong and durable bond is critical. The surface preparation of extruded rubber plays a pivotal role in ensuring optimal adhesion. QC Electronics is proud to introduce our plasma treatment system designed to raise the surface energy of extruded rubber. The plasma technique creates the perfect foundation for flawless adhesive tape application.
Plasma Treatment vs. Corona Treatment
Corona treatment systems do not have the capability of injecting oxygen or other gases into the electrode assembly. However, plasma treatment systems do. This specific plasma treatment system injects oxygen into the plasma field. By introducing more oxygen molecules into the plasma field, we can expect a more homogeneous and dense discharge. The abundance of ionized oxygen molecules enhances the treatment’s effectiveness. Furthermore, plasma is a great surface treatment technique that can deliver higher surface energies on difficult to treat materials.
Difficulties of Extruded Rubber Treatment
Treating extruded rubber poses unique challenges due to its specific properties and requirements. One significant difficulty is the lack of tension in the line, making it challenging to apply conventional treatment methods. Additionally, extruded rubber cannot be compressed, especially while still warm, as it may deform the profile. Overheating is also a concern, as it can damage the extrusion’s shape. However, at QC Electronics, we have successfully addressed all these obstacles with our cutting-edge technology. Our plasma treatment system offers a non-contact and non-destructive solution, enabling efficient surface activation without compromising the extrusion’s integrity. With QC Electronics’ expertise, treating extruded rubber is no longer a challenge but a seamless process for superior adhesion and performance.
Superior Adhesion of Adhesive Tape
With increased ionized oxygen molecules, the plasma treater significantly raises the surface energy of the extruded rubber. Hence ensuring the formation of strong molecular bonds between the adhesive tape and the treated rubber surface. This enhances adhesion performance and bond strength.
