High Barrier Shrink Bags & Films
Our modern multi-layer film structure provides an extremely functional high barrier package for a wide variety of products and applications. With the use of the latest technology and materials, each layer provides its own unique contribution to the overall structure increasing protection. Our shrink products are market leaders in shelf life, shrink rates, puncture resistance, and mechanical and visual properties.
EVOH is the ultimate barrier for use in flexible packaging against oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and helium – providing protection for food products from spoilage as well as against bacteria. Products will stay fresh through the supply chain even when stored or displayed for extended periods of time. EVOH allows for clear packaging with excellent transparency while protecting the taste, smell, color, and freshness of the product. EVOH is also recyclable and is environmentally safe – unlike PVC / PVDC films.
EVOH – Ethylene-Vinyl Alcohol is a copolymer comprised mainly of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Having a highly sophisticated molecular crystalline structure, EVOH provides an extreme barrier against oxygen and other gasses that is 10,000 times greater than that of standard LDPE films. When used in a multi-layer structure, EVOH provides the longest shelf life extension possible for meats and cheese due to almost completely eliminating oxygen permeability.
