Solve Complex Adhesion Problems in Film & Flexible Packaging

Working with polymers presents a unique manufacturing challenge. These materials have low inherent surface energy, making adhesion difficult. BTG Labs’ products are a direct replacement for dyne ink tests and allow film & flexible packaging manufacturers to safely and accurately quantify the quality of material surfaces and gain confidence that adhesion processes will be successful. 

Common Film & Flexible Packaging Applications

  • Replacement for dyne ink testing
  • Implement surface quality specifications for incoming material from suppliers
  • Define optimum corona treatment levels
  • Verify and monitor corona treatment in production
  • Eliminate product scrap due to destructive dyne ink testing
  • Ensure successful lamination, the application of coatings and metallizing
  • Fix printing and sealing problems
  • Pinpoint migration of low molecular weight components
  • Control the effects of aging on material surface quality while it’s in storage
  • Identify environmental contaminants on rollers or transfer areas
  • Verify and maximize the effectiveness of bump treatment
