Amcor has introduced ACT2100 heat seal coating for medical-grade DuPont Tyvek 2 and paper packaging applications. This coating technology delivers enhanced performance features for healthcare applications, it said.
The company did not specify any geographical area but said that this application would be produced in multiple locations worldwide to offer customers increased flexibility to be supplied from the most suitable place for the manufacturing and packaging of their devices. Amcor has multiple production sites in India as well.
Customers choosing ACT2100 will benefit from the solution’s broader seal range in combination with numerous materials, allowing for a wider operating window in their manufacturing operations and enhanced seal strength for more robust package integrity through distribution.
Consumers will enjoy speedier ethylene oxide sterilization cycles thanks to the material’s improved porosity, a fiber-free peel, and a bright, white adhesive that does not yellow. In addition, documentation and data will be available to support healthcare packaging regulatory requirements in all regulated markets.
Amcor ACT2100 will include CR27 and SBP2000 heat seal coatings
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 our customers to choose to leverage traditional validations with legacy products or use ACT2100 for newer requirements.
Amcor said that this innovation builds on its reputation for high-quality, reliable performance heat-sealing adhesives for medical-grade papers and Tyvek material, including Amcor’s CR27 adhesive.
“We’re proud of our new packaging solution, especially since it has been developed leveraging the best of CR27 with improvements that are aligned with our customer’s continuously evolving requirements,” the company said.
