Radio Frequency (RF) | Dielectric High Frequency (HF) Welding or Sealing
Radio frequency welding or sealing, also referred to as dielectric high frequency (HF) welding or sealing, uses a rapidly alternating, high-energy electromagnetic field to stimulate the molecules of two overlapping layers of standalone or laminate constructions. The stimulated molecules create localized heat, causing the two layers to fuse together at the point of contact, creating a weld. After the weld cools, the bond is as strong as the original materials.
Applications where Dureflex® film may be RF welded or sealed include: protective clothing; shoe components; gel- and foam-filled cushions; surgical pouches; bellows; lumbar support; hydration reservoirs; inflatable boats; and medical and commercial mattresses.
