Corona Treatment of Medical Devices:
As corona treatment is a bonding treatment, it is commonly used nowadays to treat medical equipment and make its surface adhesive for printing ink.
Examples of the medical products subjected to this treatment include; the barrels of plastic syringes, medicine bottles, transparent tubes used for
fluids, and even surgical scrubs.When the air around the surface of a product is exposed to a high voltage charge, it creates a frenzy of atomic energy.
The oxygen molecules start breaking and merging with others present in the product material, resulting in a surface that is more prone to adhesion.
Texturally, a corona treatment of medical devices changes the surface from a smooth and slippery one, to a rough and coarse texture that will grab the
ink, adhesive or coating more rapidly. The change in the chemical make-up of the surface allows things to adhere to it which is a stronger bond than s
imple mechanical bonds.
Benefits of Corona Treatment of Medical Devices
There a number of benefits of using corona treatment for medical devices. A few of these are:
The corona treatment improves the flexibility of plastic and laminated materials and allows the manufacturer to mark their products with a seal, logo or label of their choosing.
It also provides an element of safety, as previously, an open flame was used to create this chemical reaction manually. Corona treatment of medical devices is extremely effective, especially in the case of three-dimensional parts, because the machine has a number of heads that can treat the object from various angles, allowing for complete coverage at a single time. If manual labor was hired to sand the smooth surfaces, it would be very costly for the manufacturing companies; hence, corona treatment of medical devices is also cheaper and cost-effective as compared to the manual methods.Although corona treatment of medical devices is commonly being performed, this treatment is also being used in a wide variety of industries, such as automobiles, electronics, pipes, ophthalmic lenses, electrical cables and wiring, etc. Hence, the use of corona treatment to alter the surface composition of objects and to create strong adhesive bonds is a big success and its numerous benefits make it the ultimate choice for product manufacturers from a range of industries.
