Vacuum Pouches

Vacuum Pouches from Elkay Plastics provide an excellent means of storing and preserving foods such as meats, cheeses, nuts and more. They are available in two styles: Laminated Poly Nylon and Co-Extruded Poly Vacuum Pouch, and both offer excellent performance and value. Use Laminated Poly Nylon pouches for applications that require extended boiling times. Elkay Vacuum Pouches are designed to be used with commercial vacuum sealers and are not compatible with home vacuum sealing machines.

Poly Nylon Vacuum Pouches
Poly Nylon Vacuum Pouches feature a laminated construction of polyethylene and nylon that provides excellent strength and good flexibility. Triple-Seal construction provides a secure seal. Elkay vacuum pouches provide outstanding permeability and oxygen transfer rates for optimum food storage. Vacuum pouches are commonly used for the packaging of meats, nuts and other prepared foods as well as sous vide cooking (a specialized cooking technique that involves cooking items contained in a vacuum pouch). All Poly Nylon Vacuum Pouches comply with FDA requirements for food applications.

Co-Ex Vacuum Pouches
Co-Extruded Vacuum Pouches are made from a blend of polyethylene and nylon that offers excellent clarity, strength and flexibility. The excellent barrier properties for oxygen and moisture vapor transmission assure freshness of the food contents and thus extends shelf life for a variety of food products. Vacuum pouches are commonly used for the packaging of meats, nuts and other prepared foods as well as sous vide cooking (a specialized cooking technique that involves cooking items contained in a vacuum pouch). All Co-Ex Vacuum Pouches comply with FDA and USDA requirements for food contact.
