Issues with membrane sealing

By Joseph Vickers , Cytiva

Are you dealing with membrane sealing issues?

When sealing microporous membranes or media into a plastic part, there are a number of factors that should be taken into consideration. These include handling, environmental, and design factors, as well as the integral properties of the media and other elements.

Another consideration is the device seal. How is the membrane held in the device? What plastic or material are you using? What are the thermoplastic properties of the two materials? Is your membrane sealing similar materials? These are just some of the questions that need to be considered when developing sealing mechanisms for your device.

This membrane sealing webinar examines some of the most successful and commonly used practices in welding, bonding, and sealing of plastic medical filtration devices. You will gain a better understanding of the basic characteristics of widely used microporous materials and learn how to navigate through the selection process. This is an opportunity to benefit from the company’s knowledge in the handling and selection of microporous materials to enhance the quality, performance, and reliability of medical filtration devices.
