Zircon Technologies and Leo Designs and Packaging have invested in Vetaphone corona treatment system. The sale and installation of the corona treatment systems were handled by the company’s India agent Weldon Celloplast.
Denmark-based Vetaphone was founded by Verner Easby, who invented Corona treatment and established the company in 1951. Polymer films have chemically inert and non-porous surfaces with low surface tensions making them non-receptive to bonding with substrates, printing inks, coatings, and adhesives. Corona treatment increases the surface energy of plastic films, foils and paper to improve wettability and adhesion of inks, coatings and adhesives.
Commenting on the installation, Sanjeev Sondhi, director, Zircon Technologies, said: ‘Vetaphone is the inventor of corona treatment. Its name is synonymous with corona treatment. It is Zircon’s resolve to prefer state of art equipment to enhance the quality of our filmic labels.’
Varun Rao of Leo Designs and Packaging, added: ‘I am happy that KD Sahni from Weldon suggested us to opt for this equipment. Vetaphone is a global leader in corona treatment. When you aim to be amongst the best, one has to use the best equipment.’
Weldon is a supplier of equipment, tooling and consumables for the label and packaging industry.
Kanwardeep Sahni, managing director of Weldon, said: ‘Zircon is India’s leading label company continuously expanding their footprint in the Indian label industry. Leo Design is a fast-expanding company, with indulgence in various segments of the packaging and for them to opt for Vetaphone was a natural exercise opting for universally acclaimed product Vetaphone, that would enhance the print quality of their films delivering additional value to their customers.’
