Corona Treatment is generally applied to web surfaces whose normal surface tension is not sufficiently high to permit good wetting by inks and coatings used in many commercial applications. Corona Treating increases the surface tension of most materials by including molecular changes in the surface of the film. By applying concentrated energy (an electrical discharge) to the surface being treated, oxygen molecules break down and bond to molecules in the material being treated, increasing the surface energy. Measuring the change in the surface tension or the dyne level is facilitated by comparing the difference of the surface tension of the treated and non treated material.

Roll Slitting and Rewinding from Westech Industries, Inc. thumbnail

Roll Slitting and Rewinding

Roll to roll slitting is done in the web form by mounting the roll to be cut on an unwind stand, threading the web over and under a series of rollers, and then attaching the "tag" end of the web to a tube mounted on a rewind shaft. Slitting is accomplished by positioning revolving score knives over the web and applying pneumatic pressure to cut the web to the desired cut width as it is pulled from the unwind stand to the rewind section.
