A new light and compact hot-tack tester for testing heat seals on packaging films is said to be less expensive and laborious to use than other commercial units. Available here exclusively from Mocon, Inc., Minneapolis, the HT1-XS Hot Tack Tester comes from RDM Test Equipment Co. in the U.K. The unit can measure the seal strength over a range of temperatures and record the various results on one graph viewable on the touchscreen display. Cold peel testing can also be performed on this instrument.
