IDS brands United Silicone and CER provide heat seal technology with industry-leading technical performance. In addition to systems, our patented proprietary silicone formulations are used to produce a wide range of consumables including rollers, seal bars, seal heads and fixtures.
Like hot stamping, heat sealing is a process where time, temperature and pressure combine in an optimized way to achieve desired results.
Over the past several decades, users frustrated by the narrow process window allowed by inflexible metal (and the resulting low yield and high scrap rates) have discovered a powerful alternative in thermally conductive silicone rubber.
United Silicone´s patented thermally conductive formulations are ideal for a wide range of heat seal applications.
Heat seal solutions that combine metal with thermally conductive silicone provide a number of powerful benefits including:
