This technology solves a long-standing issue for handling sample bag materials. Its unique ability allows any bag made from FEP or Kapton® film to be transformed into an easy-to-use and resealable container for storage and processing applications, including for cryogenic and high-temperature needs.

Duralok™ bags can be manufactured and packaged along with any other heat-sealing techniques inside its state-of-the-art Class 10,000 clean room to ensure the quality and cleanliness of FEP or Kapton® films.
