Market Applications

FLEXOTEAR® pouches are made of transparent plastic film on both sides. This ensures that they are particularly robust, with users able to identify their contents at a glance. The linear tear-open effect also makes them very easy to open. 

FLEXOTEAR® pouches with Tyvek® valves are particularly suited to sterilisation by ethylene oxide. They are also available without Tyvek® valves and are then solely for sterilisation by irradiation
