Effects There are many good reasons for vacuum packaging, and often several of them together are decisive.
Oxygen exclusion A lot of ageing processes need oxygen (such as bacterial decay of foods, oxidation or corrosion of metals, etc). Excluding oxygen delays ageing processes and enables longer storage times.
Modified atmosphere After evacuation, the packaging can be filled with gas or a mixture of gases optimally selected for the product in question. This can for example promote maturing, delay ageing, improve product appearance, etc.
Outward barrier Hermetic sealing protects the product from ambient influences such as bacteria, moisture, etc.
Inward barrier Hermetic sealing also prevents the escape of odour, gases or liquids.
Compact volume Due to atmospheric pressure from outside, vacuum packaging compresses the product as far as possible, thus saving transport and storage space.
Firm positioning Vacuum-packed products are held in place by the external pressure, and cannot be damaged by sliding, rubbing or scratching.
Optimal results can only be achieved through optimal MMM (man-machine-material) interplay - and this also applies to packagings. VC999 offers much more than packaging machines alone – comprehensive customized packaging solutions.
Accordingly, we stock a complete range of vacuum packaging bags, trays, foils and all the other materials required.
We also help you with the procurement and integration of special materials or components from other suppliers.
