When choosing materials for our product, quality is the guiding principle. All used materials are safe to be used with food. Some of them are:

  • PA/PE – polyamide and polyethylene for vacuum packaging bags. The excellent quality of bags and foil rolls is due to the right combination and quantity of these materials (PA/PE – 30 µm/70 µm and PA/PE – 30 µm/100 µm). Contact us if you wish to know more about the material, its quality and its distinction from other bag materials on the market.
