Eliminating Shrinkage and Warping in Automotive Parts

For years auto part manufacturers have been flame treating plastic parts to increase adhesion for various reasons including painting and gluing. This is an accepted method despite numerous problems with flame treating any plastic part.

When you introduce heat to plastic you will stress relieve the material which causes warping and shrinkage.  The scrap rate using this method is costly and avoidable. Using open air plasma technology the Lectro-Treat Three Dimensional Plastic Surface Treater will treat plastics without damaging the part in any manner.

The Lectro-Treat is perfectly suited for the automotive industry.  Millions of air bags, pillars, door panels, arm rests, consoles, head rest, visors, and glove boxes have been passing through Lectro-Treats for years.  From the initial start up customers see an immediate return on their investment.

The savings come in a variety of ways that go beyond the elimination of scrapped parts. The Lectro-Treat requires little maintenance, eliminates set up, down time and reduces energy costs.  With the removal of open flames the chance of incurring a workman’s compensation claim drop to zero. Property insurance rates are also lower when no open flame is present in the plant.  

The unit is simple to operate and does not require an operator.  Product treatment is even and repeatable.   

This is a turn key system built and designed from the ground up from the world wide leader in three dimensional plastic surface treatment.  Throughout the world manufacturers are saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in production costs by eliminating primers and moving to water based paints for their auto parts.

Automotive parts treated by the Lectro-Treat have been accepted by automobile manufactures worldwide.  It is the most logical choice for surface treatment in the market today.
