Surface Treatment

Surface treatments to improve adhesion and wetting of an adhesive to a substrate.

Surface Treatment

Description

Our surface treatment products alter the surface energy of a substrate in order to improve adhesion – particularly ideal for cases where the material is difficult to wet. By using either plasma surface treatment methods or a special propane-butane-organosilicon gas flame, the surface properties of a substrate can be altered allowing an adhesive or similar to wet easier than without any treatment at all. Contact our product specialists for more information about these technologies.
