What Setting Should I Have My Heat Sealer On?

For thicker bags/tubing you will need to set the timer on a higher setting.
It is best to test out the timer setting before commencing work.

You must also keep in mind that you do not need to use excessive force on the top bar when sealing, as the heat element does all the work for you.
