Where surfaces are to be wetted, coated or glued, previous treatment is required ever more often. Conventional methods include mechanical roughening, the use of primers, flame treatment and corona or plasma treatment.
An often simple, gentle and cost-efficient alternative to this is UV surface treatment.
For example, LCD displays are cleaned with UV light during production or plastic containers activated prior to printing.
