Moisture Barrier Bags and Materials
Minimize the amount of oxygen, moisture, and water vapor that can enter your packaging, all for the right price. Edco’s barrier materials are an affordable solution to a simple yet extremely important problem. Moisture barrier bags protect a variety of items from corroding, including dry food, medical diagnostic kits, and more.
Protection Against Corrosion
The reason why the regulation of moisture in packaging when an item is in transit is so important is because moisture and oxygen lead to humidity, which in turn, leads to corrosion. The last thing you need is for your company to ship your most valuable products to stores, distributors, or even customers, only to have them arrive covered in mold and/or rust. With Edco’s Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) bags and papers, you can keep that moisture under control. VCI bags are vital to the protection of electronics in particular when in transit.
Moisture barrier bags, VCI bags, desiccant bags, and the various other items we offer that serve the purpose of preventing the accumulation of moisture wouldn’t be much good if you had no way of knowing whether or not the packaging even was humid in the first place. Luckily, Edco’s humidity indicator cards do just that. They help you locate areas that are particularly vulnerable to moisture through color coordination. When you open the bag, you will be able to check the color and determine the level of humidity that the package has accumulated in transit.
In order to get the best value out of your desiccant packs, we recommend you place them into a tightly sealed moisture barrier bag. You should also keep tabs on whether it’s time to replace the desiccants. The best way of knowing when your desiccant packs have reached their limit is by reviewing your humidity indicator both before sending a package and/or upon arrival at its destination.
Our moisture barrier bags, VCI bags, desiccant packs, and more all meet military specification. In addition, nearly all of our staff has over a decade of experience in the industry and is eager to help advise you on the most effective mil spec packaging plan for your business.
