Which dielectric covering you choose will really depend on which application you have, blown film, cast film or wide web extrusion as well as factors such as which materials you are treating, line speeds, whether you have a nip roll or not and budget!
However, what is critical, is that the quality and integrity of the dielectric covering on the base roll plays a key role in the successful operation of the corona treater. The correct covering will give you years of trouble-free treating, but the wrong covering will give you many problems.
Failure to select the correct dielectric covering can lead to;
- High-frequency generator failure
- Frequent generator tripping
- Fuse failure
- High tension transformer overheating and burn-out
- Patchy, uneven treatment
- Back-side treatment
- Insufficient treatment levels
