Heavy duty heat sealing foil, peelable; suitable for long term storage, transportation.

Heat sealing offers a 100% effective method of plate sealing, for complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective.


Our Thermal Bond Heat Seal is a heavy duty laminate foil seal suitable for providing a very strong, but peelable seal. The seal is compatible with polypropylene plates to provide a high degree of sample protection. It demonstrates very good solvent resistance and can be used for very low temperature compound storage, in DMSO and organic solvents, and long term room temperature storage such that it is recommended as suitable for sample transportation.

The seal can be pierced only by using a blade or using the 4titude® Pierce Plate (4ti-0398).

Thermal Bond is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer.

        Peelable heat sealing foil with wide material compatibility; suitable for low temperature storage, high temperature uses and PCR.

        Heat sealing offers a 100% effective method of plate sealing, for complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective.


        Our Universal Peel Heat Seal is a laminate seal compatible with PP, PE, PS, COC and PC plates, providing the highest flexibility in plate material choice. Sample access is possible by peeling from the compatible materials and also by piercing the seal with needles, but not with plastic tips. It is resealable by applying another Universal Peel Heat Seal directly on top of a previously pierced seal.

        Universal Peel Heat Seal forms a complete seal to a plate enabling low temperature uses as well as high temperature uses, such as PCR (when used with a pressurised heated lid).

        The seal demonstrates moderate solvent resistance.

        Use of Universal Peel Heat Seal makes roll changes unnecessary even for customers using different microplate materials, because with minor adjustments of sealing parameters all common microplate materials can be sealed to.

        Universal Peel Seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in two roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer.

          Peelable heat sealing film, optically clear; suitable for qPCR and optical applications

          Heat sealing offers a 100% effective method for plate sealing for a complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective.


          Our Clear Heat Seal is an optically clear polymer film forming a peelable seal to polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates. Samples can also be accessed by pre-piercing with a blade, needle or our Pierce Plate (4ti-0398).

          The optical clarity of this seal enables its use for sealing plates required for imaging use, including fluorescent detection methods such as qPCR and colorimetric assays. The Clear Heat Seal forms a complete seal to a plate enabling both low temperature uses, including low temperature storage, and high temperature uses, such as PCR (when used with a pressurised heated lid).


          This seal demonstrates moderate solvent resistance and can be utilised for short term compound storage at room temperature.


          It is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer. Our sheet seals are inter-leaved with paper sheets to help denote which side is the sealing side and aid removal of one sheet at a time from the pack.


          For applications requiring high tensile strength (e.g. bead mill applications) please see our Clear Heat Seal Plus.
