New Applications for Heat Sealing Plastics

Advances in technology have opened new vistas for medical devices and fluid delivery systems. These solutions integrate with human biology to deliver medicine or extract fluids safely and hygienically. Heat sealing plastics made these innovations possible by providing hermetically sealed plastic delivery systems that remain safe to the wearer.

In situations where ultrasonic welding isn’t suitable, heat sealing provides a method to overcome challenges by creating a secure bond between thermoplastics using precise heat and pressure. Although the applications for these types of seals vary, the market continues to grow..
