Plastic vacuum bags for food

Flexible Packaging offers a line of plastic vacuum pouches that use materials consisting of 0.6mil nylon and 2.4mil polyethylene with ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), with the three sides featuring a 9.5mm seal width with no lip.

Pouches meet FDA specifications for food use but are not guaranteed for boiling temperatures. They are available in cases of 1,000 units, with samples provided on request.

The heat-sealed pouches have internal dimensions of approximately 13.3cm x 29.5cm.

Resealable stand-up plastic pouches

Flexible Packaging’s stand-up zipper pouches are made of oriented PP and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) with a 28.5mm lip, tear indentations and a rounded bottom gusset.

Zip-seal bags feature an interlocking mechanism to provide a resealable closure. Pouches comply with FDA regulations for food use, available in units of 1,000.

Materials used in the stand-up zipper pouches include 1.6mil biaxially oriented polypropylene and 2mil low-density polyethylene (LDPE) or LLPDE.

LDPE offers effective clarity for packaging, but it has weak film strength, whereas LLDPE offers greater strength, puncture and tear resistance, used mainly in injection moulding.

Poly-nylon vacuum pouches for beef poultry and fish produce

Flexible Packaging can provide custom-sized poly nylon vacuum pouches, used mainly for beef, poultry and fish produce. They are made of a three-layer blend of nylon, polyethylene and LLDPE, suitable for both snorkel and chamber vacuum packers.

Poly-nylon pouches are available in a semi-matte transparency with a 0.28mil thickness and a 210°C sealing temperature.
