We recommend impulse hand sealers for your most basic plastic sealing applications! Our hand sealers seal poly bags and any thermoplastic material such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) quickly and efficiently. No warm up time is needed.
Materials up to 40″ wide and 10 mil thick can be sealed depending on the sealer model. A signal light and “beep” indicates the heat cyle is complete and the seal is done. Once the timer is set, hand sealers will provide a consistently flat seal that is air tight and water tight. Approximately up to 1,000 seals/day.
Impulse sealers can seal instantly:
Polyethylene, Saran, Nylon, Polyvinylchloride, Polypropylene, Pliofilm, Kel-F, Mylar, Polyflex, Polyurethane, and Polyvinyl alchol.
Easy to use:
No warm up time needed. Just place your film/bag between the seal arm, press, and release.
See our Sealers w/Cutters for sealing and cutting applications.
Available in 8″, 12″, 16″ and 20″ with 2.5mm seal width
HOW TO PICK A HAND IMPULSE SEALER
Our hand sealers come in a variety of different models. The main difference is the length and the width of the seal.
LENGTH: The length is obvious, just pick a model with a length a little more than the longest bag or widest film you need to seal or cut. Don’t get a 12″ sealer to seal a 12″ wide bag…that’s cutting it too close!
SEAL: Seals are available in a variety of widths starting at 2mm. Pick a wider seal if your seal integrity is very important. A good example would be a food application where you don’t want any air or dirt getting in to the product or a liquid application where the seal needs to be leak proof. Cut-and-Seal We also offer a round seal element for shrink film, shrink bags or poly tubing…the round element will cut and seal the material at the same time. This is a no charge option. For these cut-and-seal applications, choose a 2mm wide sealer and specify “round element” in the comment section of the shopping cart.
QUALITY: All our hand sealers are metal construction, not plastic. On the 4″ through 20″ sealers you will see different brands and models, the TISH series and AIE series. All are metal sealers. The AIE series are UL listed (CE listing is available on some AIE models). AIE and TISH models are manufactured in Taiwan,
CUTTERS: Our hand sealers with cutter have a blade that allows you to manually cut a shrink tube or poly tube after you seal it. This is primarily used with tube stock to cut the tube to length or open the sealed end of the tube for the next product. When sealing bags, shrink or otherwise, you usually do not need a cutter! See the “round element” information above.
