What is Corona?
Corona is a visible electrical discharge which occurs when a high voltage, high
frequency electrical potential is applied to a small diameter electrode in relatively
close proximity to an electrical ground. The resulting electrical discharge is known
as a “Corona Discharge”. This corona discharge will cause partial ionization of the
surrounding atmosphere and can be used for surface modifcation.
How does Corona Treatment work?
To obtain good adhesion to materials that have a low surface energy i.e. low or
non-polar materials like PP, PE, HDPE etc. we create a high voltage, high fre-
quency electrical discharge or corona discharge in close proximity to the part to
be treated. This high energy corona discharge is attracted to the material severing
the molecular bonds on the surface. These severed bonds are now free to attach
to free radicals and other particles that exist in the highly active corona discharge
environment. The resulting formation of additional polar groups on the material
surface have a strong chemical attraction to inks, paint, coatings, adhesives etc.
leading to signifcantly enhanced surface energy and therefore adhesion.
