Pyrosil has become the industry standard to attaining adhesion that would otherwise be unattainable through standard flame. That is not to say that flame pre-treatment does not have a purpose, it also improves surface tension and cleans the glass of oils and contaminates. Pyrosil expands on this and provides a silicate coating to the drinkware that is being pretreated to essentially provide a new surface for the print.
Pyrosil is typically used for glassware, although there are many additional pieces of drinkware that will have poor surface tension. It is also ideal as a pre-treatment for UV inks, which typically doesn’t last through dishwashers or simply scratches off after the print. Glassware manufactured almost always will have a coating applied to it so that it doesn’t scratch. This coating will decrease the print adhesion. Pyrosil remedies this by providing the silicate coating over the coating that was applied during manufacturing. The additional coating is invisible to the eye. The flame will also rid the product of any oil or contaminates that are on your product. Our Model FL is the best value in the market for applying Pyrosil.
If you are in the market for a Pyrosil treatment system, you will be looking at paying over $100,000 for that unit, which will also use more of the Pyrosil and end up costing you much more. Conventional Pyrosil treatment systems have multiple burners at different angles consuming Pyrosil. Our Flame Treater comes in at half the cost of the competition and only uses one burner, has universal tooling for a variety of different shapes and sizes and its’ indexer is completely mechanical, only requiring oil. Your product is placed on an 8-station indexer and rotates 360 degrees when in front of the flame. The Flame Treater is dependable and odds are you will rarely, if at all, need components for the indexer. The flame components on the machine are industry standard and built to last.
