How the Termalock™ Industrial Sealer Enhances Flexible Barrier Packaging

Flexible barrier packaging is quickly becoming a rising star in the packaging industry, protecting foods and other specialty products from oxygen, moisture, light and odors while also extending shelf life. At Fres-co, the flexible packaging solutions that we develop for our customers yield numerous benefits, and our engineered film structures provide a level of protection that is unsurpassed in the packaging industry.

However, our industrial seals that serve as a highly impenetrable barrier against the elements that can compromise a product’s integrity aren’t achieved simply through magic. Fres-co’s Termalock industrial sealer is the real deal, providing goods with the protection they need as they travel between global manufacturing locations and end users.

The video below, which demonstrates the efficiency and strength of the Termalock industrial sealer, highlights a few of the unique benefits of this innovative packaging system, so you can see for yourself how it is a real game-changer when it comes to flexible barrier packaging.

In addition to reducing users’ fuel consumption in their global supply chains by as much as 89 percent, the Termalock industrial sealer delivers significant value to customers by employing enhanced packaging technology to apply a final, protective terminal lock to all packaging.

Not only does this allow for perfect package palletization, a benefit that helps customers reduce their transportation costs by up to 33 percent, but it also makes for a highly efficient and streamlined packaging process with increased system performance and a higher throughput in terms of bags per minute. This efficiency is also demonstrated in the video, as the portable machine operates semi-automatically and is simple to operate, integrating easily with existing filling lines.

Among the many benefits that can be derived from this affordable system, perhaps the most impressive is the quality of the seal it creates. Coupled with the strength and structural integrity of our large, premade industrial barrier packaging, the seal provides an additional level of protection that will keep products safe from oxygen, moisture and light.

The hermetic seal created by the Termalock is strong — good luck trying to tear it open with your hands — and works with materials like plastic, foil and paper, in addition to barrier films. It also locks out oxygen so well that cutting into the strong packaging with a knife or blade will create a noticeable sound of air rushing into the formerly airtight bag or pouch.
