Mylar Bag Packaging

If you are a part of the packaging world, you might have heard a lot about the Mylar bag packaging.

Let’s see what the buzz is about.

What is a Mylar Bag?

A Mylar bag is a metalized polyester packaging bag. It is highly consumed worldwide for packaging food especially those food items that need to be stored for longer periods.

Mylar bags are the best insulators and protect the food from outside environmental factors. When packed with oxygen absorbers, mylar bags can increase the shelf life of food for up to several years.

Process of Mylar Bags Packaging at PakCo

PakCo applies the best and efficient techniques for the manufacture of mylar bag packaging for your food products. Have a look at the process below:

Step 1: Preparation

All the materials are assembled and mylar bags are put inside the storage containers.

Step 2: Loading the food

The required amount of food is transferred in each bag, leaving some of the space empty for sealing.

Step 3: Partially sealing bags

Bags are sealed partially, leaving two inches open.

Step 4: Adding oxygen absorbers

Oxygen absorbers are unpacked and added quickly through the unsealed area.

Step 5: Fully sealing the bags

Bags are immediately sealed after the addition of oxygen absorbers.

Step 6: Checking the seal

Seals are rechecked for any hole or space left.

Step 7: Sealing buckets or containers

Lastly, containers or buckets carrying the mylar bags are sealed and stored, ready for transportation.

How do Mylar Bags Protect Food?

Since moisture and oxygen degrade the quality of food, mylar bags paired with oxygen absorbers help maintain the nourishment and freshness of food. The oxygen absorbers consume all the unnecessary oxygen from the bags after they are being sealed.

Due to their metalized nature, mylar bags are much more reliable than vacuum-sealed bags because the aluminum film not only protects the food from oxygen and moisture but also many other factors like heat, light, UV rays, molds, etc.

Mylar bags are great packaging supplies for packaging food because these are:

  • Non-porous
  • Impermeable to different gases
  • Durable
  • Tear and damage resistant
  • Cheap
  • Easy to use

There are certainly other types of options available for packaging food but they are comparatively more expensive and not as good as mylar bags.

What Type of Food can be Stored in Mylar Bags?

Mylar bags are typically applicable for dried and low-fat food because these are used for long term storage. Any food material containing high moisture content will go bad in mylar bags. The same goes for high fats food, they will start to go rancid in 3-12 months.

Any dried and low-fat food can remain fresh and new in mylar bags for a longer time, that means things like:

  • Dried fruits and veggies
  • Pulses
  • Pasta
  • Cereals
  • Powdered milk
  • Spices
  • Flour
  • Rice
  • Grains

"I liked them because they are strong, do the job, and what I need for my company and they arrived on time."
