Rapak launches W-Seal a reinforced welding system designed to limit transportation damage. It creates a honeycomb-like pattern in the melted plastic, resulting in a stronger seal, while preventing possible cracks and leaks at the welded seam. W-Seal resolves one of the main concerns when it comes to bag-in-box: a risk for plastic cracking on the seam where the dispensing tap is welded into the flexible bag. A standard welding seal of a flexible bag is uniform and without any profile; the molten plastic might drift away and as a result, there can be a recession which can create potential for stress cracking at the tap and bag welding seam. With W-Seal, the plastic is profiled so the melted plastics flow into the honeycomb structure, creating.
