Heat Seals & Heat Sealing

Heat sealing is the gold standard method of plate and tube sealing. It prevents sample loss and maximises sample security, by facilitating a 100% complete seal and preventing evaporation, leakage and contamination. Our Heat Seal Range, read more.


Heat Sealing Instruments:

The application of heat seals is much faster than when using caps or adhesive seals. Typical sealing times are around 2.5 seconds, depending on throughput and the use of a semi-automatic heat sealer, such as the 4titude® 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, or a fully automatic roll heat sealer, such as the 4titude a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer.
