Xhale® Heat Seal Adhesive

Xhale heat seal adhesive

Our adhesive coating process stands alone. Its performance in sterilizable packaging is unparalleled.

Xhale® adhesive with sure-seal DotCoat® technology uses a hot melt coating process to apply 100% solids in a uniform dot pattern. Our coating process maximizes adhesive anchorage and substrate breathability. Adhesive dots merge during sealing, providing a caulked effect for strong seal verification.

Material Applications

Our research and development of proprietary heat-seal coatings led to the development of Xhale® adhesives. Xhale® adds function and value to:

  • DuPont™ Tyvek®
  • Ovantex®
  • Papers
  • Films
  • Foils

The DotCoat® Difference

Xhale®‘s cohesive separation allows for clean, smooth peelability.

Measure of porosity (in Gurley seconds):

  • Raw Tyvek® (22)
  • Tyvek® coated with Xhale® (30)
  • Tyvek® coated with competitors’ adhesive (140)

Features & Benefits

  • Save money with reduced EtO sterilization cycles and faster set-up and run speeds
  • Extraordinary porosity: Breathability approaching uncoated Tyvek®
  • Exceptional adhesive anchorage to substrate, eliminating risk of adhesive flaking onto the medical device
  • Mistake-proof verification of a strong seal when dots from proprietary DotCoat® technology merge
  • Engineered dot height forms continuous, evenly coated surface with precise amount of adhesive
  • Unique cohesive separation formulation creates clean, smooth peelability
  • Superior humidity and condensation resistance
  • No yellowing over time from exposure to UV light, for high-quality device packaging appearance
  • Minimal pressure needed during sealing operations which extends equipment life
