Corona treatment of foam and board | FoamTEC


PP board is made of blended PP co-polymer and has one major disadvantage – low surface energy, resulting in poor surface adhesion for water-based adhesives and inks.

Corona treatment systems by Tantec significantly increase surface energy and improve adhesion.

Corona Treatment of Foam and Board. To optimize treatment and minimize waste it is important that the entire board surface is treated. To achieve this result, it is necessary to have the corona discharge around the board’s edge.

Tantec solves this problem by increasing the thickness of the dielectricum layer, increasing the roller’s longevity and allowing corona treatment to the board’s edge.

Increasing the insulation thickness will even out the discharge and ensure uniform treatment of boards up to 50 mm in thickness.

The FoamTEC is available for single and dual sided treatment. Adjustable electrode which ensures max. flexibility.

Electrode height adjustment with digital read-out. When treating corrugated board, it is important to limit the treatment inside the cavities to avoid loss of power and creation of ozone.

The Foam TEC with thick insulation of counter electrodes limits treatment inside the cavities.

Technical specifications

Easy to install and use The system requires compressed air and the electrical connection.
Single or dual sided Both single and dual sided treatment systems available.
Easy adjustment of treatment width The stainless steel wire electrodes are easily adjusted in treatment width. This requires no change to the electrical power system.
Watt density control In combination with the HV-X series power generator, the system will adjust the generator output power according to the line speed.
Parallel opening A parallel sliding device with pneumatic cylinders enables easy access to the treating area for cleaning and maintenance.
Process control In combination with the HV-X series power generator and PLC units the system can be monitored and adjusted very easily.
Cost efficient treatment process Only electrical power is needed to achieve the effective treatment of foam and board, typically systems run from 1-4 kW depending on width and speed.
Safe and clean The system is equipped with safety switches and interlocks to ensure safe use. The ozone filter system eliminates the ozone generated during the process.
