User comments about this story
I am extruding polypropylene in a table edging form. I am using PVC base inks on top and the adhesive will not stick even with two plasma units in use for surface treatments. I am sure this is all due to having the wrong inks for the poly-p application. Can you shed some light on this problem I am having or steer me to a company that can help me?
