Barrier foils

Article-Barrier foils

Barrier foils are a laminate of polyester, aluminum and PE that provide a low moisture-vapor transmission rate and protect items that may deteriorate due to corrosion or moisture damage. Other bags and liners allow water vapor and aggressive gasses to seep through, allowing deterioration of the product to occur, but this can be eliminated with the use of the foil, the co. says. The 3D bags and shrouds provide corrosion protection for machinery and metal goods during transit and long-term storage. They can be manufactured in many shapes and sizes to suit the dimensions and styles of the outer packaging and can also include a clear barrier viewing panel.
