These small yet powerful units are probably the most ubiquitous packaging machines, and are used to seal bags for a great variety of industries and applications. They are affordable and easy to use, which makes them a great alternative for light-duty bag sealing applications. The sealing process is simple: The operator places the bag over the sealing element and lowers the upper jaw thus activating the unit. The seal process quickly ends once the preset seal time is reached. The operator retrieves the sealed bag and repeats the process. Bags are sealed repeatedly and uniformly.Features:
Simple to use - No operator training.
LED sealing power indicator.
Adjustable timer for optimal seal control.
Seals bags made of any thermosealable material.
No Warm-up time necessary.

The width of the seal is about 2mm. The sealer will work on ANY kind of plastic bag. I've tried it on a variety of plastics: grocery bags, Ziplock bags, sheet protectors, laminating sheets, mylar, and even the non-woven backing on CD sleeves! On non-porous plastics, the sealer creates an airtight seal EVERY time.
I use this sealer for not just packaging but for a variety of non-conventional uses. I use it to reseal bags of chips, make custom pockets and bags for my camera lenses and filters, "reconstitute" air pillows -- you know, the kind you find in Amazon's packaging? -- that I've pre-punctured and flattened for storage. I also make disposable mylar sleeping bags with it (it takes a few passes). The usefulness of this sealer is limited only by your imagination!
I've been using this sealer heavily for 2 months now and it's held up very well. The teflon-coated fabric strip is showing a little wear and has areas of blackened residue (from melted plastic, which can be scraped off). Nonetheless, the fabric and underlying wire are fully functional. The sealer does come with two sets of replacement fabric and wire. When it comes time to replace them, you simply have to unfasten 2 brackets (by loosening 4 screws) and replace the wire and teflon-coated fabric strip.
I wish I had gotten the 12" version of this sealer since I often use it to reseal my big bags of chips to preserve freshness -- the 12" version should seal these bigger bags in one convenient pass. So, if you think you might use the sealer for larger projects, consider getting the 12" or larger version of this sealer!
There may be BETTER sealers out there, but if you're looking for a BUDGET sealer, it is the opinion of this reviewer that the Impulse Sealer is the way to go.
This is a very poor quality product. Look elsewhere for your heat sealer needs.
It took me about 2 minutes to calibrate it for my packaging, and I was packaging my product with ease!
Parts of the body are held together with wood screws, the manual says, confusingly, that the dial is for "degrees" and "seconds". The highest setting, 8, only keeps the unit on for 2 seconds and will NOT seal Mylar/BoPET.
The power cord is also ungrounded and is thinner than some USB cords, which is downright frightening. I intend on replacing that as soon as possible.
What I'm going to do is bypass the timing circuitry connected to the logic board sitting behind the dial and then relocate the on button from under the hinge to a hole I'm going to cut into the side of the devices body.
There's more than enough room inside to do this and if you have any sort of experience with modifying cheap Chinese equipment, I suggest you do the same. That way you can hold the silicone bar down and just turn it on for exactly how long you want it to be on.
Never buying anything from HiRez or any of the other vendors t hat sell this item ever again.
