Body Armor, Medical PPE and Similar Products That Require Protection from Water and Other Types of Fluids

Manufacturers of body armor can use Sonobond ultrasonic equipment to satisfy NIJ standards for human, canine and equine users.
Manufacturers of medical nonwoven and similar products can also utilize our machinery to produce leak-proof seams that are strong enough to even meet OSHA/Health & Safety requirements.

Achieve Effective and Efficient Production Outcomes with Sonobond Ultrasonic Technology

The SeamMaster® High Profile Sewing Machine delivers an assured assembly solution for a wide variety of items with its ability to:

  • Soften and fuse woven or nonwoven synthetic materials, or blends with up to 40 percent natural fibers, without stitch holes, glue gaps, fraying or unraveling
  • Operate similar to a traditional sewing machine, requiring minimal operator training
  • Bond and trim in one step, making it four times faster than conventional stitching and 10 times faster than adhesive methods
  • Use only a minimal amount of material at the seam
  • Provide high clearance for hand-guided operations and easy assembly of bulky materials.

For body armor assembly, the SeamMaster® Ultrasonic Sewing Machine and our PlungeBonder™ machine:

  • Seal the seams of the inner nylon protective envelope, or cover, that surrounds the ballistic material in body armor
  • Attach coated straps to the cover without compromising the seam integrity
  • Create a barrier that keeps the seams secure even after submersion for 30 minutes.

Assembly Applications Requiring Sealed Seams:

  • Body armor & ballistic components
  • Medical & surgical gowns
  • Face masks & wound dressings
  • Bedwetting protection & incontinence panties • Lint-free cleaning wipes
  • Storage pouches for medical & dental instruments
  • Protective covers for outdoor furniture
  • Hazmat gear
