Packaging material made from polyolefins such as PP and PE, as well as laminated, varnished or coated cardboard packaging are used to a large extent in the packaging industry. They are used particulary for food, cosmetics, medicine or electronic products. The packaging is often printed for labeling and decorative purposes and also in further processing steps glued.
Due to the inline capability of the plasma systems, processes in the packaging industry are able to be operated at high process speeds at a high efficiency and also enable safe and reproducible pretreatment for perfect adhesion for a cost-effective production.
High-quality folding boxes are often difficult to glue, as they are often provided with a surface made of polyolefins or lacquers, which makes the gluing difficult or even impossible. Plasma pretreatment enables a secure bonding.
Cosmetic products and packaging have high demands on quality and appearance, while producing high quantities at the same time.
