    The treatments oxidized the surface of the substrates increasing the base and the polar components of the surface energy. The conventional corona treatment gave higher surface energy and oxidation level than the nitrogen and helium plasma activations. The laboratory scale plasma activation was the most efficient one, because of the longest treatment time. Inkjet print quality of PE film clearly improved due to treatments. On the contrary, print quality of PP film worsened. Treatments for the paper substrates lead to relatively small changes.
