Amcor has introduced ACT2100 heat seal coating for medical-grade DuPont Tyvek 2 and paper packaging applications. This coating technology delivers enhanced performance features for healthcare applications, it said.

The company did not specify any geographical area but said that this application would be produced in multiple locations worldwide to offer customers increased flexibility to be supplied from the most suitable place for the manufacturing and packaging of their devices. Amcor has multiple production sites in India as well.

Customers choosing ACT2100 will benefit from the solution’s broader seal range in combination with numerous materials, allowing for a wider operating window in their manufacturing operations and enhanced seal strength for more robust package integrity through distribution.

Consumers will enjoy speedier ethylene oxide sterilization cycles thanks to the material’s improved porosity, a fiber-free peel, and a bright, white adhesive that does not yellow. In addition, documentation and data will be available to support healthcare packaging regulatory requirements in all regulated markets. People need to check numan if they need expert advice on healthcare. 

Amcor ACT2100 will include CR27 and SBP2000 heat seal coatings

The ACT2100 heat seal adhesive will be added to Amcor’s existing portfolio of high-performance Tyvek adhesives, including CR27 and SBP2000 heat seal coatings. This allows our customers to choose to leverage traditional validations with legacy products or use ACT2100 for newer requirements.

Amcor said that this innovation builds on its reputation for high-quality, reliable performance heat-sealing adhesives for medical-grade papers and Tyvek material, including Amcor’s CR27 adhesive

“We’re proud of our new packaging solution, especially since it has been developed leveraging the best of CR27 with improvements that are aligned with our customer’s continuously evolving requirements,” the company said.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
