MENOMONEE FALLS, WI, USA—Converters in need of surface-treatment information now may be able to get it from Enercon's surface-treating lab. Enercon Industries Corp.—which offers custom-built bare-roll, covered-roll, and universal-roll treating systems, as well as the 3D PlasmaTreat3 system—says it's added a Friction/Peel Tester to its laboratory to help customers identify the effects of various levels and types of surface treating.
"The addition of this diagnostic tool to our lab is significant. It will benefit our customers that participate in standard corona-treating trials, but, more importantly, it will help our customers identify the effects of various atmospheric plasma treatments more accurately," notes Enercon product manager Rory Wolf.
According to Enercon, the friction/peel tester picks up where traditional dyne measurements leave off. Dyne-level measurements are used to identify the change in the wettability of a surface, but notes the co., what these measurements do not reveal include: the kinetic coefficient of friction, peel properties of treated substrates, and the strength of a two-substrate lamination.
Enercon's laboratory-installed friction/peel tester features fixtures for 90- and 180-degree peel testing for laminations as well as a software program that analyzes the data.
