The Hot Tack Tester is an advanced system for monitoring the seal performance of flexible and semi rigid plastic bags or tubes.

The Hot Tack Tester has been developed to determine the capability of a heat-seal join to hang together when it is stressed, at a specified time interval, while still hot from the sealing operation, but before it reaches ambient temperature.

Hot tack knowledge is a considerable concern as package seals must be able to withstand forces and stresses applied during the form filling process.
