ACT2100 heat seal technology from Amcor expands manufacturing operations window, enhances seal strength.

A new heat seal coating for medical-grade DuPont Tyvek and paper packaging applications from Amcor features a broader seal range in combination with numerous materials, allowing for a wider operating window in manufacturing operations. The ACT2100 heat seal coating also features enhanced seal strength to improve packaging integrity.

The coating technology will be produced in multiple locations worldwide, offering customers flexibility in choosing the most suitable location for the manufacturing and packaging of their devices, said Amcor in today’s announcement.

ACT2100 accelerates ethylene oxide sterilization cycles thanks to the material’s porosity, added Amcor. The Clean Peel system minimizes the risk of fiber tear and tearing during pack opening, and the bright, white adhesive does not yellow following sterilization. In addition, documentation and data will be available to support healthcare packaging regulatory requirements in all regulated markets.

The ACT2100 heat seal adhesive will be added to Amcor’s existing portfolio of high-performance Tyvek adhesives, including CR27 and SBP2000 heat seal coatings. This allows customers to choose to leverage traditional validations with legacy products or use ACT2100 for newer requirements, said Amcor.
