Clear Barrier Food Packaging



Clear Barrier Packaging for Food Preservation

Many food products require barriers against oxygen, moisture and odors to stay fresh as long as intended. In particular, high-quality packaging materials increase the longevity of perishable food items and help ensure their safety.

At Caltex Plastics, we provide a variety of clear barrier food packaging options to keep products fresh through the storage, shipping and retail processes. Our clear barrier bags are suitable for packaging:


  • Dried foods
  • Beef, fish and poultry
  • Cheeses

  • Frozen foods
  • Snack foods
  • Spices

  • Powders
  • Liquids
  • Food rations

Though the packaging solution that's right for you will depend on your product's preservation requirements and the expectations of your consumer base, many food processors find our barrier bags useful in vacuum packing, long-term storage and odor barrier applications.

Read on to learn more about our clear barrier packaging products and their specifications.

CALVAC 6X

CALVAC 6X is a multi-layer packaging material made from laminated poly nylon film. Used to vacuum seal beef, poultry, fish, cheese and other common perishable goods, CALVAC 6X performs better than coextruded film and offers impressive strength, flexibility and clarity.

These clear barrier vacuum seal bags meet FDA and USDA guidelines for food contact safety. They can also withstand refrigeration and freezing which allows for maximum convenience.



CALVAC 6X 5.0

CALVAC 6X 5.0 is a heavy-duty version of our CALVAC 6X packaging material. Its thick construction prevents tears and punctures, making it ideal for vacuum packing items with corners and edges that stick out.

Because CALVAC 6X 5.0 offers a stronger seal, it's suitable for use in long-term food storage and food ration packaging applications. It provides superior strength while still retaining flexibility and clarity for ease of use.

Like CALVAC 6X, this material meets FDA and USDA guidelines for food safety, withstands refrigeration and freezing and performs better than coextruded film.



CALPM4

For food products that require simple protection from the elements, CALPM4 provides a solution. These bags have an outer layer of polyester and create an effective barrier against oxygen, moisture and odors.

When compared to a similar polyethylene bag, CALPM4 provides significantly better protection against oxygen, making it particularly useful for packaging oxygen-sensitive contents. In addition, CALPM4's translucent material makes identifying the bag's contents fast and easy.
