The Surface Flame Treatment System for Extrusion Lines, Converting Lines and Automotive Industry

Some material, such as plastics, have inert and non-porous chemical surfaces that make them non-receptive to the affixing of substrates such as printing inks, adhesives and coatings. Flame increases the surface tension (wettability) of the material so as to prepare it for subsequent applications like printing, painting, dyeing, gluing, coating, lacquering, adhesive tapes, metallisation, lamination and so on.

This process mainly consists in passing flame over the surface of the material to be treated. Flame treatment can be used to improve the adhesion capacity of all plastics as well as some non-plastic materials including aluminium, paper or metallised products generally

How is a flame treatment system created?

The flame treatment system is composed of a mixture generator, with integrated electric panel and operator panel for the automation and control of the equipment, along with the treatment station unit. The system, designed to work with all common industrial combustible gases, is equipped with automatic ignition and continuous flame detection.

It includes safety devices to detect any fault, in line with European regulations. The system can be amply integrated online to connect with any production line machinery on which it is installed, offering the possibility to be managed from the main console. EsseCI Treatment Station is equipped with a unit for the analysis and continuous control of the working mixture composition.
