Mylar is an industrial trademarked brand name that is often confusing. In its basic form, mylar is a CLEAR material made from polyester resin. IMPAK produces MylarFoil bags used in a wide range of industries which require moisture and oxygen barriers to ensure product integrity. Polyester film, ('mylar') when laminated to aluminum foil provides additional barrier properties and higher puncture resistance than any metallized polyester structure.
Mylar food storage bags are an integral component of any good food storage systems and has been used for many years. Food grade neutralized mylar bags are used for lining food storage pails. Mylar bags create an oxygen barrier to protect food during extended long-term food storage. Mylar bags for food storage can be sealed with a standard heat sealing unit or with an ordinary clothes iron.
Food grade metalized mylar bags add a layer of protection that will seal out light, insects, and oxygen better than just a bucket alone.
What is a Mylar Bag?
Mylar is just an industrial trademarked brand name, like Clorox is just a brand name of bleach.
Mylar is actually the clear part of the bag made from polyester resin. The Mylar bags we use for long term food storage have a foil lining. When Mylar is laminated to aluminum foil it provides additional barrier that acts like a big flexible can!
The best part about Mylar bags is how easy they are to seal at home, you can use anything from your food saver to a hair straighter iron!
