Perfecseal Proudly Announces Paper Lock™ Perfecseal’s Newest Forming Film System:
Perfecseal, one of the medical device industry’s most trusted and technically advanced suppliers, proudly introduces the Paper Lock™ system. This system combines an advanced, multilayer, coextruded forming film with an uncoated medical Kraft-grade paper. Both components have been designed to work exclusively with one another to produce peelable, fiber-free seals.
The Paper Lock™ Hybrid forming film (Specification 36608) is the first to offer the advantages of ionomer and nylon resin technologies in the same forming film. This combination yields a robust film with the following characteristics:
- Excellent formability
> Ideal for applications requiring contoured tooling (e.g. syringe and pipette packaging)
- Superior durability and abrasion resistance
> Outperforms ionomer-based coextrusions
- Excellent pocket retention
- Peelable sealing to Perfecseal’s 35886 uncoated paper
> Eliminates the need for costly heat seal coatings
The film’s mechanical strength advantage results in cost savings through down-gauging. Additionally, direct sealing to an uncoated paper represents furthers cost savings potential.
The Paper Lock™ direct seal paper (Specification 35886) is a 70 grams/square meter (GSM) paper engineered to seal specifically to Perfecseal’s 36608 film. This paper complies with EU and ISO porous microbial barrier materials guidance documents.
The Paper Lock™ system is the perfect solution for your most critical packaging needs.
