Composition & Benefits

What is Mylar made of?

What are the strengths of Mylar?

Mylar is a unique material which at its core is composed of a PET film. This stands for polyethylene terephthalate. In its natural state, PET is a clear film. However, with the addition of different layers, it takes on a wide variety of characteristics. They can also be made with printed patterns and glossy laminates to give the bags a bolder appearance. Our Mylar bags are made of three layers. They are produced with an outer layer of BOPP or biaxially-oriented polypropylene, a middle layer of VMPET film or vacuum aluminum plating method film, and then an inner layer of cast polypropylene. Mylar is capable of extraordinary things. It has lasted in extreme conditions, even going into space on NASA’s ECHO II satellite. It has high tensile strength and flexibility. It offers superb protective abilities and low thickness. Our mylar packages are at least 3 mils thick. This material is also chemically stable and not conductive.


What is Mylar packaging best used for?

Mylar’s flexibility and thickness make it wonderful for food preservation. When these packages are made airtight with a heat sealer, they block out air, water, and gas. Food that has been stored in Mylar bags has been found to last as long as 30 years in the right conditions.
