AIS flame treater
Available from AIS Container Handling
Making sure labels stay on plastic bottles and containers during shelf life is very important to brand identity and image. This can be tricky because newly manufactured bottles and containers often have poor adhesion to the inks and glues in screen printed, plastic and paper labels.
To enhance the adhesion capabilities of plastic bottles and containers they are often flame treated. Flame treatment subjects a container to contact with a flame for only a few tenths of a second. This short burst of flame creates an acceptable surface bonding for the inks and glues in labels.
Safe and reliable, the AIS flame treater is an excellent option for improving the adhesion capabilities of plastic bottle and container surfaces to labels. Easy to use and operate, the system is available in two-burner or four-burner configurations. Flexible adjustments to burner height and width allow the unit to accommodate various container sizes.
With optional ignition control, the AIS flame treater saves energy by automatically shutting off the flame when no bottle is present. Integrated safety features monitor bottle flow for jams and line back-ups both in and out of the flame area. In addition, safety guarding around the flame treatment area prevents operator contact with burners.
