DuPont Packaging: On-line tool for selecting sealant

DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers’ latest online modeling tool-- Sealant Selector--is designed to help packaging engineers and designers identify the most appropriate sealant and to explore new ways to handle tough sealing challenges in applications ranging from pharmaceutical packaging to meat and dairy packaging.

Used in combination with the DuPontSaVE (Sealant Value Estimator), Sealant Selector helps packaging engineers and designers quickly identify the potential sealant resin options from the vast array of possible choices and then compare their value-in-use in terms of reduced packaging failures and waste.

Users of the tool enter criteria and their importance, such as converting process attributes, packaging form requirements, end-use conditions, and other property needs.  The selector then compares the hypothetical performance of many typical sealants.  If one of them is DuPontSurlyn ionomer resin, the user can then enter additional information, such as melt index range or type, and the tool will suggest the top five grade choices.

The tool also offers base-case idea starters for sealing solutions in typical applications.  Technical data sheets are available for download to further speed the selection process.  The suite of on-line tools, which also includes a modeling tool that simplifies tie-layer selection, is designed to complement in-person technical consultation.
