• Roller/platen sealing:

Trend is going to more output by using roller sealing. With this the sealing area is well used and aligned with the cavities.

• Temperature/time/pressure:

This useful triangle must be balanced and evaluated. Knowing the biggest impact is given by temperature.

• Bottom material—right heat-seal coating:

Per each different thermoform material the corresponding sealing layer on blister lidding foil is recommended: Standard materials are fully covered. Even a coating for [Honeywell’s] Aclar is available.

• Cross permeation:

An interesting factor for sensitive products is also the impact of cross permeation through the seal when using barrier materials such as cold form materials.
