Amcor today introduced the ACT2100 heat seal coating for medical-grade DuPont Tyvek and paper packaging applications.

According to the company, this coating technology delivers enhanced performance features for healthcare applications and will be produced in multiple locations worldwide, with the aim of offering customers increased flexibility by supplying the product from the most suitable location for the manufacturing and packaging of their devices.

Amcor also says that 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, as well as enhanced seal strength for more robust package integrity through distribution.

Speedier ethylene oxide sterilization cycles will also reportedly be possible due to the material’s improved porosity, a fibre-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.

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