New Pulsed-Plasma Treating System from Corotec Corporation Designed to treat Hard-to-Reach Medical Part Surfaces

Farmington, CT -- Corotec Corporation has introduced their new Pulsed-Plasma treating system, designed specifically for treating hard-to-reach surfaces of medical devices such as the insides of plastic hubs that hold hypodermic needles and dispensing nozzles.

The Pulsed-Plasma system can treat a variety of parts which would be difficult or impossible to treat with conventional corona, flame, or other means. The system is capable of treating up to 20 parts per second or more, depending on the particular application.

This new system is the latest addition to the Corotec line of treating equipment for medical applications, all designed to improve the bonding of inks, adhesives, and coatings. The company offers a wide variety of treatment units and technologies for surface treatment of medical parts, including its popular Plasma-Jet® system for 3D parts.

"The new Pulsed-Plasma treating system treats the inside surface of small areas that conventional systems cannot access," said Bruce Stobbe, President of Corotec. "For instance, the attached photo shows a plastic hub that is commonly used to hold the needle for a syringe being treated. The hub has a very small hole where the needle is inserted and glued into place. Treating the inside of the small hole greatly improves the bond between the hub, needle, and the adhesive."

Corotec designs and manufactures a complete line of standard and custom corona discharge surface treating equipment of narrow web and wide web applications, systems for controlled atmosphere testing, ozone generators for coating and laminating processes, and other advanced applications.
