A high-performance heat-seal lidding is suitable for EtO and radiation sterilization. TPT-021C is made from Tyvek 1073B and features the company's SealScience proprietary coating technology. The TPT-021C is designed for rigorous sterilization, sealing, and shipping conditions. The lid stock offers a 20°–40°F wider-seal window on most plastics than other lidding offers, according to the company. This wider-seal window allows for shorter dwell times and minimized flange distortion. The coating provides positive indication of seal integrity with solid white adhesive transfer visible upon opening. Tolas Health Care Packaging, Feasterville, PA.
