Packaging company Amcor has launched a new heat seal coating technology, dubbed ACT2100, for healthcare packaging applications.

The new coating, which is developed for medical grade DuPont Tyvek 2 and paper packaging, provides improved performance features for healthcare applications.

Amcor has decided to produce the new heat seal coating in multiple locations across the world to easily supply from the suitable location to the customers for the manufacturing and packaging of their devices.

The new solution’s improved porosity will enable faster ethylene oxide sterilisation cycles. The fibre-free peel and bright white adhesive will not turn yellow.

Documentation and data will be offered to meet healthcare packaging regulatory requirements in all regulated markets.

The ACT2100 heat seal adhesive is part of the company’s Tyvek adhesive portfolio, which also includes CR27 and SBP2000 heat seal coatings.

Amcor stated that the new solution has been developed leveraging the best of CR27 with improvements, which are aligned with the firm’s customers continuously evolving requirements.

In April this year, Amcor launched customer trials with its recyclable polyethylene-based thermoform blister packaging system, known as AmSky.

Amcor is engaged in the development and manufacturing of packaging solutions for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, home- and personal-care, and other products.

With around 47,000 employees, the company generates $12.5bn in sales from operations that spread around 230 locations in more than 40 countries.
