For pretreating polypropylene and polyethylene parts, we have the option of plasma treating. Plasma is a gas that has the capacity to conduct electricity. It is the electric energy in combination with the plasma gas that changes and modifies the surface of the treated substrate. Just like flame treating, a more traditional pretreatment method, plasma treating lowers the surface tension of the plastic to allow for proper ink adhesion.

This process can be used for both flat parts such as polypropylene toothbrush handles or round parts such as polyethylene tubes used for medical testing. For higher volume projects, plasma treating can easily be added to a 4 or 6-station dial tables to add the pretreatment in-line which reduces the overall decorating cost. Plasma treating is also often used for medical applications to limit or eliminate part distortion.
We have the capabilities to work with companies across the US and are excited to work with you on your upcoming project!
