Vacuum Pouches

Vacuum pouches are made from a combination of nylon and polythene which enables them to be high moisture barriers.

These films always have a strong mechanical property which makes them puncture resistant and leakage proof. They are also able to restrain strength at freezing temperatures and possess an excellent optical property for base forming films. They are available in various oxygen transmission rates which help in extending the shelf life of materials.

They also have a quick sealing property for faster machines and increased output. Dual oven able film is best for packaging of frozen food or any product which requires heating in an oven or microwave since they are heat resistant. Specialty Lidding films are ideal for trays and cups because they are lucid, metalized and in retort able forms. High barrier is used to keep products safe from harmful bacteria while breathable Lidding films are used to control oxygen into the products.

Lamination Films
