How to change jaw or impulse sealer Teflon heat strips

The Teflon tape is the heat resistant material that protects your packaging from being melted too fast, when bag sealing with a jaw/impulse sealer, or L-Sealer.

It comes in flat strips ...
the right length for your machine, or on a sticky roll, ready to cut and apply.

Overtime the hot wire beneath it will burn through, leaving an exposed area which will melt your plastic instead of sealing it and leaving a hot area on your sealer where you can easily burn your hand if you accidentally touch it.

Replacing the strips can be done in a few minutes with just a screwdriver and a roll of tape. I get mine from Amazon, this is my affiliate link:
I use the 25mm wide tape.
