Effect of corona treatment of PE-coated board on water-based flexographic print resistance
The effect of corona treatment of polyethylene-(PE-) coated liquid packaging board on its surface chemistry was quantified using surface energy determination by drop spreading and dyne-liquids, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The increase in total surface energy, due to its polar component, with increasing corona dosage, and its decrease on aging and washing, was strongly correlated to surface oxidation fraction from XPS. A fine structure of nano-mounds...[Show more]
