PT-Print as the solution in printing applications

With PT-Print it is possible to print on any type of substrate - glass, plastic or metal - using PlasmaPlus® technology.

A completely new, patented atmospheric plasma source enables intensive surface treatment, resulting in a flawless surface that is virtually free of organic contaminants. This preparation of the surface for printing achieves unprecedented adhesion for UV inks. Unlike previous pretreatment processes that use solvents and require a lot of energy and ovens, the new process works without solvents.
Like no other form of energy, plasma energy is ideally suited for the targeted surface treatment of all kinds of materials. Even highly sensitive surfaces can be reliably and safely cleaned, activated and coated. 


Direct-to-metal UV coating


Our Partner ACTEGA, represented by José Trigo, the Global Market Manager for Food & GL Cans, showcased their printing solution at Metpack 2023. José Trigo presented the innovative approach of directly applying UV coatings onto metal, in collaboration with Plasmatreat and Brasilata Labs. This groundbreaking solution has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 40% compared to solvent-based coatings.

Customization of various products


Custom-printed elements in particular are becoming increasingly popular. In printing, the cheaper standard plastics such as PP or PE pose particular challenges for the industry. Their low surface energy results in inadequate wettability, making them very difficult to print on. Openair-Plasma® pretreatment increases the substrate’s surface energy, significantly improving wettability. The result is a considerable increase in adhesion, which allows printing ink to form a long-lasting, wear-resistant bond with the surface.

In contrast to non-polar plastics, metal and glass have inherently polar surface characteristics. PlasmaPlus® technology comes into play to protect the printing on metal and glass, for example, against changing temperatures or other environmental influences.

PlasmaPlus® technology can further optimize the process of printing, and in some cases, it can actually make it possible in the first place. The application of the plasma coating to the substrate immediately before printing eliminates the priming that was normally required.
The various applications of plasma have already proven successful in numerous different industries.
