At Unique, we have pretreatment and post treatment capabilities to ensure we get the best possible ink adhesion results. For polypropylene and polyethylene plastic parts, we have flame treating and plasma treating equipment place to ensure proper adhesion.
Treatment Capabilities at Unique
For these processes, we use custom built pretreatment equipment that has been designed for high output for both flat and round plastic parts - meaning lower pretreatment cost for the customer. For high volume projects, we can add plasma treating to our 4 station and 6 station dial tables putting the treatment process in-line for even more cost savings.
- At times, parts arrive with surface contaminates such as dust or mold release that will adversely affect ink or foil adhesion. Depending on the material of the part, we have a variety of chemicals that can remove the contaminate.
- We also have several industrial heat ovens for post treatment to ensure proper ink adhesion glass parts and some plastic parts.
- For more challenging plastics such as Acetal (Delrin / Celcon) or Urea, we have developed printing processes that produce excellent adhesion.
With foil banding services, we can apply a band on virtually any shaped plastic cap, closure, collar or dispenser shroud with an impressive, high-end appearing reflective metallic foil or a high gloss opaque colored foil which is not achievable with pad printing or screen printing inks.

We can offer this service for medium, high volume and bulk orders. Heat transfer decals can be applied to many plastic materials such as polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC and acrylic.
