Barrier Shrink Bags

Keep Meat Fresh With Barrier Shrink Bags

Barrier shrink bags using DuPont advanced materials produce stronger, thinner packaging that helps keep meat fresh longer and reduces puncture and package failures.

Benefits of DuPont Resins

  • Solutions for both PVDC and EVOH based shrink bags
  • Outstanding puncture resistance
  • Superior meat adhesion
  • High shrink values
  • Excellent clarity, gloss and low gelling
  • Good orientability
  • Enhanced flexibility, low stiffness

Materials for both PVDC and EVOH based Shrink Bags

DuPont™ resins, in particular Surlyn®, Elvax® and Bynel® are used in myriad ways in barrier shrink bag structures. For polyvinylidenechloride (PVDC)-based shrink bags, DuPont resins are used for their mechanical properties, excellent orientability and good adhesion.  In EVOH-based shrink bags, Dow resins can also be used structurally or as tie layers and sealants to offer superior processability and orientability during film fabrication, and to confer moisture barrier, clarity, puncture resistance and hot shrinkage capabilities in end use.
