Utra Sonic Welding

Utra Sonic Welding

Does anyone know what thermoplastics I should consider to weld onto fabrics using a hand held ultra sound welder at 20khz-40khz low amplitude?

I've heard two different answers for polyuretahne film adn am unsure about this material.

Thank you in advance.

RE: Utra Sonic Welding

Is doing this even possible?

RE: Utra Sonic Welding

Ultrasonic welding of plastics never worked worth a crap for me.

Okay, maybe I was holding my tongue wrong, but I did _everything_ the ultrasonic vendors said to do, and it still didn't meet my expectations.

If you haven't actually paid for the welder yet, consider buying a turnkey system, with a money- back guarantee.
