“Peels and Seals” with Induction Sealing
“Peels and seals,” the layperson’s nomenclature for product seals, is the technological advancement found within many, if not most, products sold to the public these days. These peels and seals are otherwise known as induction seals and constitute an important aspect of maintaining the shelf-life and longevity of a product.
Generally, these product seals maintain the freshness of the product as they seal in the contents and protect against any changes in moisture and oxygen levels in the environment. They also prevent leaks and spills—an important feature particularly during handling and transporting of the products. These two functions allow for the international exportation and importation of goods, without sacrificing the integrity of the products or their shelf-lives.
One other important function of peels and seals is their capacity for tamper evidence. These tamper seals can manifest any form of disruption by an outside force or party, alerting the consumer of any untoward handling of their purchase. This maintains the public’s safety as well as their trust towards the manufacturers, for employing a suitable product seal and keeping their consumers’ wellbeing in mind. The importance cannot be understated, in fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even has guidelines for the usage of these tamper-evident seals for manufacturers and distributors, in the interest of the public good.
People trust peels and seals. Nowadays, these product seals are found in a multitude of industries. One example is the food and beverage sector, which employs a great deal of care in keeping their products’ freshness as well as in preventing any leaks from occurring.
One other industry which makes full use of the varied functions of peels and seals is pharmaceuticals. Without the tamper evidence provided by these seals, there will undoubtedly be a growing distrust towards the products these mega-corporations release. As such, one can easily find impressive lining machinery within pharmaceutical industries’ production lines, in order to provide the best seals for their products.
In the field of cosmetics, one cannot do without peels and seals. Having these in place can keep the processing of cosmetic products more sanitary, shielding them from any contamination during processing. Leakages are also prevented through this process.
In the agricultural sector, having adequate product seals is also imperative, as these seals are a primary defense against the corrosive substances that this sector occasionally employs. Certain types of product seals are capable of withstanding the abrasion and corrosiveness of acids, alkalis and solvents, allowing for a tight product seal without compromising the integrity of said seal.
In the innumerable industries making use of peels and seals, the consumer can entrust their products because of the innovation of seal and peel liners.
Product Sealing through The Induction Sealing Process
In the induction sealing process, a liner is inserted between the cap and the mouth of the container. This cap liner is applied through induction sealing wherein an electric current generated by an electromagnetic field melts part of the liner, strongly adhering it onto the container mouth. An important ability of the induction sealing process is that once the liner is removed, it cannot be reattached without the use of specialized product sealing equipment, making it a reliable indicator of any tampering of the product.
