Vacuum Metalized Food Packaging



Metalized Barrier Packaging for Food Preservation


Many food products require special packaging to maintain their freshness during the storage, transport and retail sale processes. To preserve these foods properly, you need a packaging material that provides a strong barrier against oxygen, moisture, odors and other external influences that could damage the product's quality or cause it to spoil.

At Caltex Plastics, we offer high-quality metalized barrier packaging for food products. You can use our metalized packaging materials for odor barrier, vacuum packing and decorative applications. We offer packaging products that can effectively store and preserve:


  • Dried foods
  • Frozen foods
  • Snack foods


  • Spices
  • Powders


  • Liquids
  • Food rations


Though the barrier packaging that's right for you will depend on your product and its specific preservation requirements, you're likely to find a product that meets your specifications in our wide selection.

Read on to learn more about the metalized barrier food packaging materials we offer.



CALVF4M


CALVF4M is an FDA-approved food packaging material that offers exceptional protection against corrosion and moisture. Use the metalized material to package powders and food-related products for one year from the date of manufacture if the product is stored at a temperature between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and at a humidity between 40 and 60 percent. This packaging is ideal for dried foods such as snacks and spices, as well as liquids.

Physical properties are as follows:



  • Thickness: 3 mil
  • Bursting strength: Greater than 60 psi


  • Puncture strength: Greater than 14.5 psi
  • O 2 transmission rate: 0.03 cc/100 inches 2 in 24 hours


  • Moisture vapor transmission rate: 0.05 grams/100 inches 2 in 24 hours
