A quality product made in the USA and are 5.1 mil thick, most are around the 3.5 mil mark, many other suppliers don't mention the thickness of the foil bag for this very reason. This extra thickness is important as this offers extra protection from the UV (ultra-violet) in sunlight and also from oxygen penetration for the air around, plus are very hard to puncture accidently. These foil bags are multilayered and have a food safe inner.
To seal Mylar bags use a household clothes iron on the high setting, with no steam, hair crimper or use one of our constant heat sealers.
Mylar bags are usually used with oxygen absorbers, please see the related items below. These remove the oxygen from inside the bag, preserving the shelf life of the food stuffs above for many years, usually up to 10 years. For camping or hiking trips or similar, oxygen absorbers are not really needed.
The oxygen absorbers we sell work with this bag size, you will need one 2000cc oxygen absorber in each 50cm x 75cm Mylar bag, it is not essential to use an oxygen absorber depending on your application, but is recommended.
These are big. I use for storing bulk rice for the unexpected. The best thing is they came next day and were cheaper than my last lot I bought from the USA witth import duties and no customs delays.
