Productive, Economical Surface Treatment

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI: Enercon’s Plasma4™ surface treatment offers converters a new solution, which provides high- and long-lasting treatment. The ingenious design breaks through production and economical barriers with ecology in mind. Plasma4™ treatment eliminates electrode breakage, while alleviating previous line speed and web width limitations. It also has the ability to automatically adjust the air gap while virtually eliminating ozone. Added benefits include extremely low gas consumption, and the ability to switch from plasma treatment to corona treatment mode.

The system is a result of Enercon’s decade-long expertise in engineering and commissioning production grade plasma systems. The surface treating system adds value to engineered films, wovens and nonwovens by cleaning, etching and functionalizing surfaces. “Early adopters of Plasma4™ are impressed with the foresight put into the design which eliminates many of the industry’s previous performance barriers,” says Rory Wolf, atmospheric plasma technology manager, Enercon.

Enercon Industries was presented with the C2 Innovation Award at ICE Europe in recognition of the development of Plasma4™ surface treatment technology. This revolutionary pretreatment technology is acknowledged for breaking ground in productivity, ecology and economy. The treatment was chosen by an international jury charged with identifying most innovative products, processes and technologies in the field of paper, film and foil converting.
