Solution Spotlight: PressSeal® Cards

When you need to go to market quickly, PressSeal® coated cards may be the answer. PressSeal® is an environmentally friendly sustainable water-based pressure seal blister coating requiring no heat, only pressure and dwell to achieve the seal. And PressSeal Cards maximize graphic space, highlighting your brand in bright colors that will stop consumers in the aisle. 

How does it work?

The seal is initiated by applying pressure to the cards, which is done using a small rolling tool or a sealing machine. However, no heat is required to initiate the seal as the pressure alone activates the adhesive material. Proper storage of finished product is required.  Cards should be stored at a temperature between 50-100 F with relative humidity of 40-70%.  Shelf life of the product in finished form is three (3) months from date of manufacture.
