Whether you are trying to improve the adhesive strength between dissimilar materials, prevent coating delamination or stop paint from peeling off a surface, Onto™ adhesion promoters solve the bonding challenges of advanced materials where there is no existing effective or practical solution.

All of our treatments are water/alcohol based and unlike most adhesion promoters for plastics they contain no aromatic hydrocarbon solvents, maximising your opportunity for greener and safer manufacturing.

Onto™ adhesion promotion treatments are suitable for use on a wide range of plastics, reinforced composites and other advanced materials including:

  • Polyolefins (UHMWPE, PP)
  • Engineering plastics (PET, PEN, PA)
  • High performance plastics (PEEK, PI, PEI)
  • Epoxy thermoset
  • Aluminium

Paints and Coatings

Delamination of coatings and paints will result in a product with limited cosmetic value and inferior product performance. Onto™ treatments enhance the adhesion of paints and coatings uniformly across the substrate, preventing bond failure even under harsh environmental conditions. Find out more.

  • Polyurethane (1K, 2K and dispersion)
  • Epoxy (1K or 2K)
  • Silicone
  • Free radical cured acrylate

Our treatments are effective with solvent-based, water-based and 100% solids coatings.
Onto™ treatments provide adhesion promotion uniformly across a coated substrate. Because no sanding is involved, no dust is generated and the bulk properties of the substrate remain unaffected. Watch the video to see how Onto™ improves bonding of coatings for performance benefits.

Onto™ solutions for coatings and paints allow fast and convenient substrate priming. We have designed a range of solutions so that we can integrate our technology into your process regardless of your application and without the need for large capital expenditure on additional equipment:

  • Long shelf life and practical pot life
  • Quicker and easier than time-consuming processes like sanding
  • Formulations tailored for conventional coating techniques such as spray, dip and even brush coating (see the video to see how simple this is!)
  • Solutions to suit different substrate forms (panels, sheets, 3D shapes, films).
  • No specialist or expensive coating equipment required for treatment application

Applications

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Marine
  • Industrial
  • Defence
  • Energy

Bonding challenge? We can help!

We will use our expertise to provide you with the best solution for your specific challenge. Evaluation Packs of our surface treatments are available for trial, so you can see how it works in your application. 

Adhesives

Onto™ surface treatments improve bonding of adhesives to plastics and composites. When you need to join dissimilar substrates, Onto™ reduces the risk of delamination at the weaker interface, leading to a more robust bonded assembly or laminate without additional need for mechanical fasteners.

Onto™ treatments provide a homogenous, uniform primed surface that is ready for adhesive bonding. We have treatments that prime for the following types of adhesives:

  • Polyurethane (1K, 2K and dispersion)
  • Epoxy (1K or 2K)

Our treatments are effective with solvent-based and water-based adhesives as well as hot melt laminates. They provide adhesion promotion uniformly across a coated substrate. Because no sanding is involved, no dust is generated and the bulk properties of the substrate remain unaffected.

Inks

Conductive Inks

Poor adhesion of conductive inks to the underlying substrate results in delamination which will cause a loss of conducting properties. We have various Onto™ solutions for improving the bonding of conductive inks to both rigid and flexible substrates:

  • Copper inks
  • Silver inks

Decorative Inks

Onto™ solutions for inks with the following binder chemistries are available:

  • Polyurethane
  • Epoxy
  • Acrylate

Onto™ solutions for inks allow fast and convenient substrate priming. We have designed a range of solutions so that we can integrate our technology into your process regardless of your application and without the need for large capital expenditure on additional equipment:

  • Long shelf life and practical pot life
  • Minimal surface preparation makes treatment process quick and easy
  • Formulations tailored for conventional coating techniques to suit different substrate forms (panels, sheets, 3D shapes, films)
  • No specialist or expensive coating equipment required for treatment application
  •  Improves bonding to flexible substrates for more resistance to delamination on substrate flexing

Metal Coatings

Onto™ EP3000 removes the need to buy pre-primed substrate, allowing you to use basic, cheaper substrate grades from a wider selection of suppliers.

metal_catings

EP3000 formulations are tailored for bar coating processes like gravure, and can be applied inline (before biaxial stretch) or offline (after biaxial stretch) to suit your manufacturing process. Once cured, EP3000 forms a non-tacky layer so films can be rolled or handled between processing steps.

Applications

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Marine
  • Industrial
  • Defence
