About barrier sacks and film

Flexipol high quality food-grade EVOH barrier block bottom sacks have been developed to provide an outstanding alternative to standard pillow sacks or poly lined sacks.

The block bottom feature is designed to create a stand-up pack for ease of filling, palletisation and reduced slippage, and the mitred gussets eliminate polythene entrapment which causes product loss. We can also manufacture barrier films.

How does it work?

Our EVOH material has high barrier properties to gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and helium. As the EVOH material has very low permeability to oxygen, it prevents goods- mainly foods and pharmaceutical products- from deteriorating. Our barrier sacks are also 100% food grade and we are BRC approved to an AA standard.

We can also manufacture high barrier sacks in a side gusseted format.

All of our EVOH barrier sacks are bespoke and manufactured to order, so our experts can work with customers to calculate a size and thickness perfect for your application and the volume and density of product you would like to pack.
