Mylar Bags: The Ultimate Guide

In light of the various competition the market faces, it is very needful that one has a good understanding of the product one considers. In the area of product sales, the packaging that is given to the product to many extents determines the success of the product in the market.

Mylar BagInclusively, the packaging of the product also create the image the producer wants to project to the consumers and increases the value of the content it packages. Since it is obvious that packaging is an essential part of any form of production, a quality research has been directed towards the best form of packaging we can make use of for our edible and non-edible products.

In our best knowledge, ‘Mylar Bags’ are the most suitable to make use of. Having made this observation, this study guide is a thorough research that offers you quality knowledge on ‘Mylar Bags’ with the assurance that your desire to know will be adequately met.

For easy understanding of our readers, this study guide is designed to be in chapters with each offering you specific knowledge on Mylar Bags. The study guide also includes some comparative clarity in which Mylar Bags are compared to other forms of packaging.

Some sections of the chapters feature the final result of the comparison, and you can do well to study thoroughly when you scroll there. Integrally the study guide offers you a clear view to know that Mylar bags are the most benefiting for both producers.

Chapter 1: What is Mylar Bags?

Mylar bags is a packaging material that derives its production from the trademark of Dupont Teijin Films.

It stands out among other packaging materials for food to be the most suitable being a purified and long-lasting polyester film material that is refined from Biaxially-comprising polyethylene Terephthalate (BO-Pet).

Historically, its first production dates back to 1952. Since then, it has survived the dynamics of the market with better innovations that put your desires into consideration. These bags are various types which include a pure polyester resin that is combined with aluminum foil.

It is a wrong conception to think mylar bags are only used for food packaging. In light of its uses in modern times, mylar bags serve as packaging materials for both edibles and non-edibles.

For example, the NASA space suit adopts mylar bag to ensure critical and assuring protective layer. It is also used for other industrial purposes.

This study guide still wants to take you on a ride to know more about your chosen product.

Chapter 2: Mylar Bag and Food Storage System

Ever since mylar bags have been adopted for food storage, producers questions on the means of preservation of food have been answered in the most practical way.

The major problems and constraint to long-term preservation of food have been threatening to producers and it has slowed down profit and excessive complaints from their consumers.

Since every packaged product requires a location to be stored in, this study guide shall offer you knowledge on the efficiency of the mylar bags to the locations where the foods are stored. In this light, mylar bags will be shown to have met the requirements of a good food storage systems.

1. Maximization of Space: In making a choice of the best packaging to adopt for your product, you are to put the product that maximizes space into consideration. Mylar bags are designed to be good for space maximization. This is because they are not built with material contents that make them heavy but they are light. Foods that are packaged in mylar bags take twice lesser space than foods that are packaged in tins and in cylinders.

Mylar Bag2. Humidity and Atmospheric Conditions: Any choice you make in getting a packaging material for your product, without putting the adaptability of the packaging to atmospheric conditions is wrong. Mylar bags are dutifully made for these purposes. Some products are highly destructible by heat while some, on the contrary, is highly destructible by cold, and all seems to spoil faster when exposed to oil.

3. Pests and Rodents-Resistance: It is possible that a storage system has rodents or pests. You will be surprised when you package your goods in a tin or ordinary plastic only to see small ants making way into such packaging. This is because either there is a leak in the packaging adopted or there is an exit to the fragrance or aroma of the food contents. All animals are highly responsive to smells. Mylar bags are designed in this awareness to be tight such as not to release the aromatic content of the food product so as not to be traceable to animals, insects, and birds.

4. Prevention of Mylar bag from UV: After purchasing your mylar bags and before use to package your products, it is essential that you put these mylar bags in a location that is filled with LED lighting. This method serves as the best strategy in preventing your acquired mylar bags from vulnerability to UV exposure. Exposure to UV makes the mylar bag weaker and therefore the food it packages gets spoiler than it is originally guaranteed.

Mylar Bag5. Hygienic Consciousness: Having directed much of the hygienic attention to the food content itself, people tend to leave the hygiene of the packaging material of the food. This ought not to be so as there should be a correspondence of hygienic responsibility given to both the food content and its packaging material. Of course, mylar bags are not designed to take hygienic responsibility for itself. That means there are some things you should know about ensuring a lasting hygiene for your products.

6. Security: For every storage system, there must be highly effective working security teams and devices. This security teams and devices must be at work 24/7. This is because the natural phenomenon like air, moisture, rodents, pests, and light are not in any time on break. As it directly applies to the food content, mylar bags are highly secured from air, light, water, and moisture because it is not vulnerable for leak or entrance of external natural phenomenon. The security of mylar bags is highly guaranteed. Also, the storage facilities of the mylar bags are designed with pest resistance doors with the atmosphere preserved with pesticides and insecticides.

7. Cool Location: For a good preservation of your food product, the atmospheric condition of the location you put your food is highly significant. After much research, researchers seem to favor 33-70 Fahrenheit. This serene condition also determines the longevity of your food product.

Mylar BagFrom the explanation above, it has been shown that there are two sides to the storage of food. First, there has to be a strict consideration of the inner layer and the outer layer of the packaging material as it directly applies to the food content.

Second, there has to be a strict consideration of the environment and the storage facilities of the packaging material as it indirectly applies to the food content.

TedPack services offer you the best products that have taken this consideration into dutiful effects. Therefore, with TedPack mylar bags, you can have the best material packaging for your food products.

Chapter 3: Required Size for Product Storage

We have many sizes of mylar bags that are available for your food products. They include 8 x 8 inches, 10 x 16 inches, 20 x 30 inches and many more. However, in cases where there is a specified size from our buyers, the making of such sizes of mylar bags is visible.

To make the figures clearer, the 8 x 8 inches mylar bags will be sufficient to contain about a quart of product. If we employ a striking similitude, this weight is equal to almost 1.75 pounds of wheat.

In more explanatory terms, the 16 x 20 inches size of mylar bag will be sufficient to contain a food product that weights a little bit more than one gallon. If we employ a concrete example to make things clearer, this weight equates to about 8.5 pounds of wheat.

The 20 x 30 inches sized mylar bag happens to be the biggest size that is commonly demanded by consumers of mylar bags.

In size, a mylar bag of this size will easily be inserted into a 6-gallon pail. This is just an example but in the space within the mylar bag, it can hold more than a product that has a weight that is similar to 6 gallons.

Let us retain our assumption that the 20 x 30 sized mylar bag is inserted into a bucket of 6 gallons, it will sufficiently contain a product that has a weight that corresponds to about 45 pounds of wheat. Wow, that seems a lot spacious for your food product.

Chapter 4: Why Use Mylar Bag for Your Product?

In light of various materials packaging that is available for food storage and packaging, consumers are bound to ask the question of the authenticity of mylar bag product that separates this product from other competitive packaging materials.

Mylar BagThe summarized answer to the question is that on a note of comparative analysis, mylar bags have been found to be the most plausible material packaging for food products.

Using Mylar bags, ensure the preservation and longevity of your food products both in the hands of manufacturers and in the hands of the consumers.

Another plausible answer to the question is that apart from its protection from external air, some packaging still uses to generate internal air on their own which can be equally destructive to the food content.

Our full grade 5.4 mil mylar bag has the inbuilt capacity to reduce this self-generated air or moisture to the barest minimum.

This is because this thick mylar bag is designed with a middle aluminum material layer with appropriate thickness (.00035 which is perfect for any middle layer) and there are two distinct layers in the inside and outside of the mylar bag respectively.

Chapter 5: Mylar Bags Vs. Other Packaging Materials 

Having explained that mylar bags have proven to be the best choice for material packaging of food products because it is the best compared to others, this chapter offers you a comparative view.

Mylar BagIn this chapter, mylar bags are compared to other packaging material used for a food product, with a clear and vivid show that mylar bags have a whole lot to offer.

There are so methods and material packaging for storing food. But it will be a mistake of the highest order to think that one material can work for all varieties of food as some are specifically made for preserving some kind of foods.

Also, some materials are specifically designed to preserve food that is made for quicker consumption. Thus, such packaging material will only be suitable for short-term preservation.

However, there is a packaging material that has been trending in the market because of its numerous dynamics by which its makers designed it to cater for different varieties of food and for both long-term and short-term purposes. Below is a comparative view of mylar bags with other packaging materials.

# 5.1: Mylar Bags Vs. Aluminum Foil 

There seems to be a gross misconception that mylar bags and aluminum foil are the same things. But in the true sense, these two packaging materials composed of entirely different materials that are distinctive from each other.

Mylar BagWhen “Mylar” is mentioned, what comes readily to the mind of people is the shiny silver balloons but this too many context contrast the original material of mylar bag. In the real sense, mylar bag contains no metal at all as it is made of crude plastic materials.

‘Mylar’ is a brand name that expresses polyester resin. Though there may be aluminum elements in the makeup of mylar, such materials are not the active material of mylar as they may be used or not used. To make mylar bag, the polyester resin is melted and reformed into thick, thin, flexible, and flat sheets.

Aluminum foil, on the other hand, is made up of an active element of bauxite ore. There is a melting of the ore and a constant mixing. This enables the ore to be detached from aluminum oxide.

From this point, there is an electrolytic reduction on the aluminum oxide to separate the oxygen from the metal. The making of Aluminum foil integrally constitutes the heating of aluminum that is passed on to a device that rolls it constantly.

# 5.2: Mylar vs. Plastic Bags 

Having said that mylar bags are made from plastic, it seems to be confusing if there are another plastic bags that contrast mylar bag. It is true that there is another plastic bag that differs from mylar. They differ not in their material composition but in the method from which they are produced.

Mylar BagPlastic bags are thin and those who have the coolness in them are more relatively thin. They are highly breakable and do not offer an exclusive protection from the air as their cover are not air-tight. For this reason, they are only fitting for foods that are intended for a short time storage.

Mylar bags, on the other hand, are highly designed with due cognizance to the requirements that ensure a long-term preservation of food products. Mylar bags are not vulnerable to the penetration of air, water, light, and moisture. Outside rodents and pests, these are the determinant factors that make food spoil more than they ought to spoil.

# 5.3: Mylar vs. Vacuum Storage Bags 

The vacuum storage bag bears its name from the understanding of the term it expresses. Such as the food saver, the vacuum storage bags are used with a vacuum packing machine. They come in different and fancier fashion but they all perform the same function.

Mylar BagTheir major function is to extract all air and moisture out of the plastic bag to ensure that the food is duly preserved. They have proven to be very useful in the area of food packaging.

However, on a more comparative note, mylar bags offer plenty of merits than the vacuum storage bag. Merits abound in both the size of mylar bags, the financial efficiency of using mylar, and the easy vulnerability of vacuum storage bag to be open to air.

The size, elasticity, and flexibility of the mylar bag cannot be overemphasized in the area of comparison. This is because it goes a long way not only in adding to the value and beauty of the mylar bag but it also saves a whole lot of cost in many respects.

Another weakness that consumers have attributed to the vacuum storage bags is that their seal is susceptible to losing over time and this gives entrance to air, moisture, light, and maybe water.

Also, in cases where the food will be open only for the remnant to be kept and used later, vacuum storage bags prove to be highly unpromising in preserving foods that fall within such a context. Mylar, on the other hand, is very hard or even impossible to leak and because of this, the products are ensured more longevity and preservation.

Chapter 6: Benefits of Using Mylar Bags

This section of the study guide offers you knowledge on how mylar stands as resistance to factors that are known to be common threats to the long-term preservation of food products.

# 6.1: Effects of Air (Oxygen) on your Stored Products

Mylar BagThe most dangerous natural terror to the preservation of your food is air. This is because there are substantial numbers of germs in the air. This gives the taste of your food some kind of distortion and sourness that makes it seems displeasing to eat.

It also affects the freshness because air transports germs that attract insects on the food. Mould and toxin can easily flourish as a result of the procreation of bacteria on your food.

This section of the study guide offers you knowledge on how mylar stands as resistance to factors that are known to be common threats to the long-term preservation of food products. 

# 6.1.1: Mylar Roles Against Air (Oxygen)

Mylar BagMylar bags work as an oxygen extractor so that the foods can be preserved. Its outer layer is designed with the kind of thickness needed to avoid being vulnerable to be penetrated by air. When mylar bags are combined with an oxygen absorber to resist oxygen, it works perfectly well and gives an outstanding result that agrees with your desires.

The thickness of the outer layer of the mylar determines the immunity the mylar enjoy from air invasion. In cases where the mylar is very thick, the food products are promised to be preserved for a very long time. This is why it is not recommended of you to store your products in packages that are not thick as it will give a loophole for air invasion.

# 6.2: Effects of Light on Your Stored Products

Mylar BagThe sensitivity and destructibility of foods to light vary among foods. Some foods are more sensitive to light. As a matter of fact, research has also shown that for some food to be preserved they require light.

However, for the sake of clarity light can be highly detrimental to the preservation of your foods. This is because a penetration of light into your packaging material will bring a disastrous effect of increasing the temperature of the product.

Lights cause product to lose their authenticity in respect to taste, handling, and view of the consumers. Foods that are open to light get destroyed quickly than foods that are not. For this reason, a profitable choice in getting a packaging material should put into consideration the packaging material that is light resistance.

# 6.2.1: Mylar Roles Against Light

Mylar BagThe aluminum-furnished mylar bag is specifically designed to resist light for a very long time. They serve as an absolute hindrance to light to enter into your products.

However, mylar mags that are recommended for strong light-resistance are the 4.5mil mylar bags and above. In cases, where you have already acquired a 3.5 mil mylar bag to package your food products, there is a need for you to double pack the mylar bags before setting them in your food grade bucket. This is required because the food grade bucket is also not free from light invasion.

Have you ever wondered why food manufacturers of this modern generation store products like chocolate bars and crisps in mylar bags? This is because they offer the best and most features that include light-resistance. Mylar bags are a light barrier material and keep the product in its coolness for the purpose of long preservation that guarantees more than nine months longevity.

# 6.3: Effect of Moisture on your Food Products

Food products that are in storage can destroy easily when open to moisture. The consequences of a food that is exposed to moisture are that such foods begin to have damp on it. This makes the food slightly wet and unpleasant to look to human beings. But to insects, fungi, and bacteria, on the other hand, this damp is highly attractive. To avoid terrible diseases, you should choose the material that is designed to be moisture resistant.

# 6.3.1: Roles of Mylar against Moisture

The facts that mylar is made with a combination of polyester resin and aluminum foil makes it possess the kind of thickness that is required to resist water or moisture.

Mylar BagIf there is a heavy rain or flood, food products that are kept in mylar bags stand a high chance of remaining cool and dry. However, an atmosphere that is humid, mylar bags storage only may not be enough to store your foods. This is because of high condensation that is caused by humid weather.

In addition to mylar bag, you can employ the use of a desiccant (moisture absorber) and an oxygen absorber if you reside in locations of humid weather. It is important to note that the use of silica desiccant has a negative effect of its own as it increases the chance of its users to have cancer. Also, most of the desiccants are food grade and suitable for things pertaining food so you don’t have to fear.

# 6.4: Effects of Odor on Your Food Products

It is obvious that it is not only one product that is usually kept on the food shelves as many products can be kept on the food shelves. If your shelves have food products that are packaged in materials that are not odor proof, the implication is that there will be odor riots and a mixture of your food products.

Mylar BagThis is usually displeasing to the consumers. Imagine you went to buy a chocolate and when to open your chocolate for consumption and you begin to smell onions or tomato. This will definitely be displeasing to you and will affect your view of the manufacturers of such products. Most foods have the tendency to absorb external odor quickly and it makes them spoil easily.

A mixture in the odor of food also distorts the taste of food. In cases where a consumer who is allergic to garlic begins to perceive garlic in a non-garlic specified food, the consumer has the right to sue or question the integrity of the manufacturers. A vulnerability to external odor makes your packaged food depreciate in value. It also brings the viability of your food storage low.

# 6.4.1 Roles of Mylar against Odor

The same material quality that makes mylar bag moisture, light, and air resistant also apply to odor. The aluminum foil which is combined to polyester resin in making ensures a thickness on the mylar bag that constrains external odor or gas to gain entrance into the food products it is used to package.

Mylar BagFood packaging materials like plastics and aluminum foil are not recommended for packaging because they may not be able to give the outer layer thickness required when faced with some harsh weathers. Some materials may even contaminate the food with their own odor.

Mylar bags serve as the best packaging material because other than its significance in maintaining good financial income and defense against natural disasters, it also put other factors into consideration. Terrorists may release gas that contaminates foods.

Foods that are stored in mylar bags are immune to such terrorist attacks as they are odor and air proof. Also, because of the essentiality of the portability of your packaged foods, mylar bags come in sizes that are very convenient for carrying.

Chapter 7: Getting Rid of Air Oxygen from Mylar Bags 

Oxygen absorbers have proven to be highly supportive in the use of Mylar bags.

Mylar BagOxygen removers are non-toxic and BPA-free devices that come with iron powder packages. They come into effect when dry foods are being packaged.

In the process, they are used to extract air from the material package. An input of oxygen in an airtight container makes all the oxygen in the packaging material get stuck into the iron in the oxygen absorber. The only thing remained in the air is nitrogen which is not in anyways destructive to your food.

The use of oxygen absorbers does not leave you without adequate reasons why it is right to use. Reasons for using oxygen are given below:

  • The use of oxygen absorbers prolongs the longevity and preservation of most dry food for at least 30 years.
  • Since oxygen is the life-ensuring substance. Extraction of oxygen in your mylar bag will make every living organisms such as fungi, bacteria, and any germs die. They cannot grow outside oxygen.
  • Exposure to oxygen is a threat to the flow of vitamins A, C, and E because they cannot work effectively when consumed with oxygen.
  • The use of oxygen absorbers helps in preserving the flavor and the fragrance of your food products.
  • Since insects and germs procreate. The eggs they lay will easily be destroyed because they cannot survive without oxygen.

Oxygen absorbers offer to be the best and the most prolonged form of preservation when combined with mylar bags. However, it is not all food products that require a combination of the mylar with oxygen absorbers. Our mylar bags can sufficiently ensure good longevity for some food products. Foods that are recommended to be stored with oxygen absorbers are mostly dry foods.

However, after acquiring your oxygen absorbers, there are steps required before it is fully ready to use.

Below is a vivid show of the required steps in preparing your oxygen absorbers for use.

Step 1: You have to ensure the cleanness and the dryness of the mylar you intend to use. The lead has to be readily available so as to seal the mylar immediately the food product and the oxygen is added.Mylar Bag

Step 2: You have to ensure that there is no debris threat to your food, especially, if the food products are beans. You can then put the food in the mylar. However, you are not to add lid this time.

Step 3: Any oxygen absorber that is not currently in use at this point should be stored in a highly protective place so as not to let it start working immediately. This is because oxygen absorbers are always fast in soaking up oxygen.

Step 4: Bring out one oxygen absorber and ensure the rest are protected in a mason jar. You can then proceed to add the oxygen absorber you brought out to your mylar bag. However, in this process, there are two tips you should know.

Follow our tips: 

Tip #1: The ideal way oxygen absorber should be when used is to be like there is something soft and powdery within them. In cases where the oxygen absorber seems hard and chunky, that implies that all the air has been extracted. It will only continue to absorb-chunk the air.

Tip #2: Oxygen absorbers will definitely heat up when putting to work. Therefore, in cases where the absorber is warm or hot, that is an indication that the absorber is fully effective. Immediately this is observed, ensure your mylar is sealed up.

Step 5: Seal your mylar bag

Step 6: Give a label or logo to your food. The essential thing that should be on the label is the name of the food product within the mylar bag, the packaging date, and the expiry date. Information of the manufacturing industry should also be included.

Step 7: Take a break, and verify if the oxygen absorber has successfully removed all air from your mylar bag. The time of waiting may be as long as days but at most a week. Since you are using a mylar bag, you have a duty to verify if your seals are an inadequate condition

Step 8: Scroll back to step 4 and 5 and repeat their contents again.

Step 9: In cases where the oxygen absorber has now fully absorb oxygen from the mylar, you have to reseal them. You should not discard these oxygen absorbers if they are still effective because they have the lasting capacity of about 6 months to one year. You can then store these oxygen absorbers in an airtight mason jar.

If you bring them out to use after the storing time and you observe that they are hard and chunky, that means they are no longer effective. You can then discard them.

Chapter 10: Things to Avoid When Using Mylar Bags 

Assuming all Mylar Bags are the same:

You should not assume all mylar bags have the same texture, inner, and outer layers. This is because various types of mylar bags are made for specific purposes. Some are designed specifically for packaging solid foodstuffs while some are designed for packaging liquid foodstuffs.Mylar Bag

However, it is not wrong that there are mylar bags that are adequate for both solid and liquid products. Therefore, in choosing your mylar bags, it is highly essential that you consider the dynamics of the types of mylar bags. Some are specifically designed for long-term storage while some may be specifically for short-term storage.

Design prototypes in the place of production:

One error that you can make in acquiring mylar bags is to make an order with the assumption that all mylar bags have the same features.

Before you make an order of large amounts of the mylar bags you want to use for your products, ensure that you request for prototypes of the mylar bags your suppliers have in store. These examples go a very long way in giving you insights to make the best choice for packaging your products.

Give due attention to the packaging process:

Mylar bagsOne of the most integral parts of food production and packaging is the filling and the sealing process. This is because an error in this process has a long way in reducing the worth or value of the products.

For example, in cases where the hotness that is used to seal the mylar bags leave some tear on the mylar bag, if you do no verify, consumers will be definitely displeased. This may be a threat to the sales of your products in the market.

Also, in the area of filling, filling machines may splash some of the food content on the mylar bag. This will certainly put the mylar bags in disorderly forms and reduce the worth of the food it packages.

Remember to verify the compatibility of food and the type of Mylar Bag chosen: 

That the production and packaging have been successfully achieved does not mean all works are done. You still need to check if the food is compatible with the kind of mylar bag you used to package it.

You are required to get consumers’ feedback on the product and to know if there is any need to modify the packaging. In cases where the mylar bags need to be redesigned to suit the product, you can then report back to your mylar bag suppliers.

For this reason, try as much as possible to get suppliers that understand the dynamics and flexibility of the consumers’ view.

Put your Mylar Bags through many tests before distributing to consumers:

Mylar BagAfter the food products are absolutely successful in production and packaging, you can pick samples from them and test them.

For examples, you can deliberately expose some of your food products to oxygen to know if the mylar is genuinely oxygen resistant or deep your product into the water to know if water cannot gain entrance.

After putting the samples to test, you can then generalize using your observation of the samples through they all passed through the same process of production and packaging. It will be a very costly mistake not to test your products before distribution. This is because a bad product in the hands of the consumers will create a bad, poor and disorganized image of the food production company.

Chapter 11: Mylar Bag FAQ 

Here are the answers to your frequently asked questions concerning mylar bags

  • What is the mylar bag?

Registered under the trademark of Dupoint Teijin Films, the first production of mylar bags dated back to 1952. Mylar bags are made from Biaxially-comprising ppolyetheneTerephthalate into clear and durable polyester resin.

This is the active material as some materials like the foil of aluminum or metal may also be added in the makeup of mylar bags. Mylar bags are designed to preserve your foods for more than forty years.

  • What are the main obstacles to the longevity of my food storage?

Basically, we have four factors that serve as threat and reduction to your food preservation and shelf life. The amount of oxygen that gains contact with the food makes the food spoil quickly.

The amount of humidity, moisture, and light that comes in contact to the food also makes the food spoil quickly. And the temperature of the location of storage is also a determinant factor that gets the food destroyed easily.

  • Are mylar pro bags all food grade and are they approved by the FDA?

Yes, all mylar bags are food grade. They are not damaging to any of your food. They have also been approved by the FDA.

  • What size of mylar bags do I need?

It comes in varieties of main sizes.

They are 8 x 8 inches, 10 x 16 inches, 20 x 60 inches, and many more.

However, don’t be too rigid about the size. If your products require any other size specification, you can always communicate with your suppliers and producers.

  • Without buying a separate and expensive sealer, how can I still vacuum seal my mylar bags?

It is true that without a sealing device you can still vacuum seal your mylar bag. You can do this using a common attachment tool that is an ordinary vacuum cleaner and you can also make use of the clothes iron you use for smoothing clothes in your households.

  • How thick are mylar bags?

Mylar bags have at least the qualification for the thickness that makes your packaging material oxygen, moisture, light, and water resistant.

The least thickness mylar bags come in is either 4.3 mil thickness or 5.25 mil thickness which are both adequately good for storing your food products.

  • Are Mylar bags airtight?

Absolutely yes. After sealing, your mylar bags guarantee you more than forty years resistance from the invasion of air

  • Do mylar bags avoid the invasion of sunlight?

Absolutely yes. Mylar bags are designed with a special foil outer layer that makes it impossible for light to gain access into it.

  • How long does it take for my oxygen absorber to start to work?

Technically, the oxygen absorbers are designed to work immediately it has been triggered to work. However, the process of extracting air from your mylar bags or other containers usually take a time of 18 to 30 hours. In cases where there is a great amount of oxygen in the bag, the oxygen absorber also works in a great capacity.

And in cases, where there is a low amount of oxygen in your bag, the oxygen absorber works steadily to extract the oxygen.

  • Are all TedPack products in stock?

Yes, all our products are in stock. They are readily available whenever you make demands on them. Their removal comes in real time.

This study is so filled with insights. You look so bright reading it. Let us proceed to the next chapter and you will see how brighter you can look.

Chapter 12: TedPack Mylar Bags 

In TedPack packaging company, we do not just work outside the directives of our customers. We create folders for questions and submissions for our customer that will guide us in meeting their needs.

Below are the questions we have formulated to get an up to date specification and requirements from our customers:

*What are the products of you require us to help you package?

A clear answer on this gives us insight into prescribing the most suitable mylar bags for your food products. This is because there are specific mylar bags that are made for specific products. Your response will make us eat the nail on the head and offer you the best mylar bag for your products.

  • By what method will the filling of the product inside the mylar bag be done?

A clarity to this answer affords us insights on the kind of shape or form your mylar bags should be in. So that it may be convenient for both the filling machines and the personnel that are to fill.

  • At the point where your foods are being filled, what will their temperature be like?

A knowledge of the temperature of your food content whether it will be cool or hot affords us clarity on the type of mylar bags that we will prescribe for you. This also helps us in designing the mylar bags in such a way that it is suitable for the temperature your food comes in at the time of filling.

  • What forms or shape should your mylar bag come in?

A clear answer to this question will give us a purposeful design for your specification. It will also give us the capacity to make a good estimation of price. However, we propose that you give us the liberty to make the choice of shapes and forms of mylar bags for you. This is because we have insights into the dynamics and the advantages of the different shapes of mylar bags adequately.

  • Is there a need for a clear window for the bag?

By this, we mean if you require a transparent mylar bag that will make the consumers see the product just by handling the mylar bag without opening it. Or if on the contrary, you want an opaque mylar that will deny the consumers visible access to the food in the bag unless it is bought and opened. A clear answer on this will keep us informed in giving you the mylar bag that is suiting to your view.

Chapter 13: Myths and Misconceptions of Mylar Bags 

This chapter will state some public statements concerning and explain the falsity of these views.

  • The removal of oxygen makes your mylar bag look vacuum packed.

False. The removal of oxygen is not determined by “vacuum packed look”. However, it is true that vacuum packed effect may be seen. But there is no such effect and does not mean the oxygen removal has not been effective. It is a wrong conception to think that oxygen absorbers absorb air. Absolutely no.

The focus of oxygen absorbers is oxygen majorly. The oxygen that is extracted is 21% air which is 1/5 approximately. This means that the remaining 4/5 air is still contained in the mylar bags. This air that is not oxygen is more than 98% nitrogen and they are not in the slightest way destructive to your food products.

  • Thicker Mylar bags work best

False. This is not so because it is not the physical strength and toughness of the mylar bags that make it dependable. However, it is the aluminum foil on the storage that constrains oxygen from entering. 7 mil thick mylar and 2 mil mylar offers the same capacity to constrain oxygen from entering your food products.

  • Check your new mylar bags for leakages. Some are not original because they have small holes at a folded increase.

Truly, there may be tiny breaks that may have been on the mylar bags in the process of filling and transporting the mylar bags. And when placed under light, the tiny breaks are always visible. But do not panic, they are not holes at all. The properties that prevent them from factors that spoil food are not affected in any way. Therefore, your mylar bag is still secured.

  • Mylar bags are not good when they fail the flashlight test.

The view that metal has been added to the transparent mylar to increase is barrier-resistance is highly false. Although, it is true that light is highly damaging to food products. However, because the mylar bags are transparent when exposed to light does not mean it is open to penetration to light. The inner layer and the outer layer of the mylar bags are highly preventive for the barriers.

Having given you clarity on the public views that surround the use of mylar bags, you are certainly convinced of choosing mylar bags as the best packaging material for your food products.
