 THE SURFACE FLAME TREATMENT SYSTEM

FOR   EXTRUSION AND CONVERTING LINES

AND AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

FOLLOWING THE WORLD’ FAMOUS

‘  MADE IN ITALY  ‘

AND BASED ON DEVELOPMENTS OF OUR FOUNDERS,

WE’RE INVOLVED WITH PROUDNESS AND PASSION,

TO IMPROVE THE WELL KNOWN BENEFITS OF

FLAME TREATMENT ON THE PACKAGING WEB,

FRIST OF ALL ON FOOD PACKAGING

BUT ALSO FOR ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS, DRUG’S BLISTERS,

TAPES, CIGARETTES AND MANY OTHER APPLICATIONS FOR PACKAGING.

GREAT BENEFITS KNOWN AND USED ALL OVER THE WORLD

FOR HAVING FRESHER AND HEALTHIER FOOD SERVED TO THE PEOPLE’S TABLES 

 

FLAME TREATMENT PROCESS

Main process it consists on the run of flame against the surface of the material to be treated.

Such surfaces, could be modified in terms of energy and surface tension, so improving wettability to prepare it

for next applications as printing, painting, coating, lacquering, adhesive tapes, metallization, lamination…

The materials can be treated are:

plastic materials, paper, cardboard, metallized cardboards and aluminium laminated sheet

 

 

Flame Treatment in Converting Industry

The application of surface flame treatment technology

for PP and other films, had been subjected at large diffusion

and evaluations from the converting industry,

by resulting to be a technology extremely reliable

and to be promoted on improvements and applications.

 

Flame Treatment in Automotive Industry

Same technology was used on PP 3D parts

and other web materials too, as:

polyethylene, polyester, paper, paperboard…

The surface flame treatment,

esseCI technology,

is a “young” technology,

despite more than half century of his life….

 

 

SURFACE TREATMENT FOR PLASTIC MATERIALS

 

FLAME TREATMENT MAIN FEATURES

  • Highest wettability

  • Hi-energy transfer on treated surface of web

  • Adoption of inks with promoter adhesion

  • No ink on unprinted area

  • No backside treatment

  • No damages on barrier properties

 

FLAME TREATMENT SYSTEM FOR PRINTING , LACQUERING AND COATING APPICATIONS

The flame treatment system for rotogravure print, is composed by a mixture generator,

with integrated board  and operator panel, for automation and control of equipment,

then, the treatment station unit assy.

The system, designed to work with all common industrial combustible gases,

is equipped with automatic ignition and continuous detection of flame.

It includes safety devices to detect any fault, as from European rules.

It permits a wide integration, via network data, with the printing machinery,

where it will be installed in, by giving possibilities to be managed from the main console, on line winder.

EsseCI treater, includes patented analyzer unit, to monitoring and manage (randomly or countinuosly),

the oxigen concentration inside the combustible mixture composition

 

FLAME TREATMENT BORN FOR THE LIMITS OF CORONA TREATMENT

During period ’60 to ’70, several quality inconveniences on “CORONA” treatment,

was rised up, by generating problems, as poor adhesion on :

lacquering,  inking, coating, metallizing, gluing,

so, by rising doubts, on the reliability  about “CORONA” technology,

used on industrial process of POYPROPYLENE web production.

In that time, PP web was designated to :

  • Food packaging

  • Film for electronic components  (capacitors etc.)

  • Tapes production

 

PEELING TEST :   FLAME TREATMENT  vs   CORONA TREATMENT

 

FLAME TREATMENT VS CORONA TREATMENT

 

 

  From 1969… our history

 1969 Giulio Lori & Augusto Angeli  found  esseCI

FONDATORI

 

The first industrial system for surface flame treatment of PP web,  was born on 1972, by “esseCI – Società di costruzioni industriali “ under the job commission of Polymer Co. co-owner of Montedison. (In that time Montedison was the only PP web Italian manufacturer). Such system, was been integrated on equipment for tape production  at the run speed of 25 mt/min and tape width of 1200 mm. After that, the spreading of technology was enlarged to other systems step by step more bigger, as power terms (to reply to hi-speed requests) and larger, as web width, (to reply to the hi-volume of production).

OUR TEAM INCLUDES

Carpentry, machine tools, wiring and assembly, design, R&S and WORLD WIDE SERVICE.

Total staff matters 30 workers, including 3 managers and 10 employees.
