Observe your Material Safety Data Sheet as well as the instructions on the label
In case of polyethylene substrates a surface oxidation by corona pre-treatment is necessary in order to achieve good adhesions. It is advisable to pre-cool the plastics material after extrusion by means of ambient air or water jet (residual water must be blown of).
