Foil Bags - High Barrier Packaging

Foil Bag Packaging

Metallized bags, sometimes referred to as foil bags, are more than just bright and shiny packages. These metallic bags have strong barrier properties and lightweight, durable material in order to make these bags an attractive flexible packaging solution for a variety of applications.

At ClearBags, we carry foil bags for food, coffee, tea, powdered mixes, detergents, pharmaceuticals, and other adult use items. Whether you need a moisture barrier bag or a child resistant locking system, we offer many different styles to suit your packaging needs.

You may have heard the following terms used for foil packaging bags:

  • Metallized
  • Metallic Printed
  • Aluminum barrier bags
  • Foil pouches
  • Heat sealable food bags
  • Heat seal aluminum foil bags
  • Aluminum-lined

All of these ideas fall into the metallic foil bag category. When selecting a foil, you'll want to think about what you're packaging and the level of barrier protection you need. Flat heat sealable food bags and aluminum barrier coffee bags, for example, are designed to seal in aromas and flavors. Metallized bags, or stand up pouches offer the highest level of barrier for non-refrigerated food products such as powdered mixes and grains.

Whatever you're packaging, one thing all of our metallic foil packaging bags have in common is their appealing presentation. It's hard not to notice a shiny foil pouch! See our inventory below to select a foil bag that works for your product.

Our selection includes the following:

Find sample pack sizes for small portions to large foil bags for electronics. Our heat sealable barrier bags are smell-proof and protect against UV light, moisture and oxygen. If your product requires a tamper-proof seal, our child-resistant pouches are a quad blend of aluminum and plastic for our highest barrier of protection. These aluminum foil bags feature a unique push release locking mechanism that requires two-handed dexterity to open. The material is opaque as well so your contents are discreet, ideal for adult use items such as cannabis products and pharmaceuticals.

Other retail options include our stand up barrier pouch and hanging zipper bag with pre-cut round hang holes. Both styles are available in bold colors such as gold, red, green, blue, and bronze. Choose from solid colors, clear oval windows, or with a clear front/color backed finish for an impressive showing on store shelves or a peg display. For our highest barrier protection of food products, our metallized stand up zipper pouches are an excellent choice for non-refrigerated products and other dry goods like bath salts and pet treats. All of our zipper pouches can be closed with a heat sealer and come with tear notches for an easy opening.
