A few years into the past, printing and labeling on medical equipment that was made of plastic or metal was a feat to be accomplished. The equipment was usually treated to a controlled flame at certain fixed temperatures in order to change the chemical make-up of its surface molecules. This process made the product’s surface adhesive so that printing ink could be used on it to label it.
However, in today’s time, technological advancements have resulted in a number of treatments that can create adhesive properties on surfaces of plastic and metal. This makes the process a lot of more simpler, cheaper and time saving. The risk of overheating products and releasing dangerous toxics is also heavily reduced. Today, corona treament can be used to treat the surface of medical devices.
