We Have Moved!
Dyne Technology Ltd has moved to new and larger premises in Lichfield. Our new facilities incorporate a large Test Laboratory equipped with a wide range of corona treating, plasma treating and surface testing equipment. We are now able to offer unrivalled support to our customers.
Dyne Technology Launch New HF SpotTEC Corona Treater
Dyne Technology has launched the new HF Tantec “high-frequency spot generator” onto the UK market. The new HF SpotTEC corona treating unit is a lightweight machine that makes it possible to connect not only one, but two treating heads to the same generator and control them separately.
HF SpotTEC creates a high-voltage, high-frequency corona discharge to treat the surface of three-dimensional moulded or extruded plastic parts, profiles, pipes and cables, containers, etc. – prior to coating or printing.
The purpose of Corona surface treatment of polymer-based materials is to increase surface wettability through electrical discharge. The low surface energy of polymer-based substrates often leads to poor adhesion of inks, glues and coatings. To obtain optimum adhesion, it is often necessary to increase the surface energy of the substrate to just above that of the material to be applied (typically 10mN/m). Surface Treatment with Corona results in good wetting of the material over the surface of the substrate and so improves adhesion.
The Dyne Technology supplied HF SpotTEC creates a high voltage, high frequency corona discharge to treat the surface of 3-dimensional moulded or extruded plastic parts, profiles, webs, containers, etc.
An airflow presses the discharge on to the substrate to be treated a counter electrode is not required. The electrical discharge creates the necessary functional polar groups on the polymer surface, which promotes adhesion and wettability to printing inks, adhesives and coatings.
