Defend’s new heat sealers have been designed with an improved, rugged heating element that resists breakage. Designed with Teflon and Micra Strip insulating cloths and a silicone strip, the UL-certified machine seals plastic sterilization tubing in just 1 to 2 seconds. The 8-inch Defend heat sealer features automatic shut-off and is available in both 110-volt and 220-volt models.

Defend, by Mydent International, offers a full line of infection-control products, disposables, and impression-material systems.
