Our vacuum bags are mainly manufactured from barrier films produced by our sister company ALLVAC, which shares the company site in Waltenhofen with us. This enables our customers to benefit from the close cooperation of both companies in the development and distribution of modern packaging solutions. Barrier films from ALLVAC are available in numerous types, differing in thickness, transparency and performance. However, they always offer highly effective protection for the products and, in the case of food, an extended shelf life. Short transport routes and fast reaction times between the companies also ensure very fast delivery. This is rounded off by well-established logistics processes, which are the key to our success in the worldwide distribution of our products and make us the market leader in Europe.
ALLVAC films with up to 11 layers
From the classic PA/PE composite film with up to 11 layers, the portfolio includes film types that are extremely puncture-resistant and from which we produce vacuum bags that can be used to package even pointed, sharp-edged bones or screws as bulk goods. Further examples, where ALLVAC films are applied, are bags for cooking or for retaining the freshness of baked rolls as well as bags for cheese maturation.
Sustainability is an incentive for both
The two companies also create valuable synergies in the field of research and development. Both share the laboratory and application technology centre, where individual packaging solutions are developed and brought to market maturity. The topic of sustainability is an incentive for ALLFO and ALLVAC in equal measure. For example, ALLVAC supplies a high-quality film made from renewable raw materials, from which we manufacture vacuum bags. Bag film without polyamide content is also being tested in order to be able to facilitate the recycling processes of the bags.

Tubular bags without side seams are a highly sought-after packaging solution when products need to be presented in an especially eye-catching way. BREVAC, our sister company specialised in the manufacture of tubular films, supplies us with the films for the production of our bags. Our in-house production halls are equipped with several extruders on which the liquid plastics material is blown upwards. For this purpose the melt is pressed trough a tool with an annular nozzle. The impressive production scenario involves several columns of hoses up to 20 metres high, virtually floating in the air.
BREVAC films score in length
BREVAC’s PA/PE films with up to eighteen layers are placed on top of each other by means of a blow head. As a consequence, they are not only characterized by their high barrier properties, but are also seamless and available in any length. These tubular films not only provide protection for the aroma of the products, but also significantly extend their shelf life expiration date. Classic products packaged with bags made of tubular film from BREVAC are, for example, sausages, which receive a second skin due to the fact that they fit perfectly to their curves and contours. Cheese cuts, fresh meat, sausage products, fish or snacks also find an appealing and highly transparent packaging solution with tubular bags. Tubular films may also be slit and used as lidding film for trays or as flow wrap.
Completely seamless – transparent or tinted
Tubular bags are available highly transparent or in tinted versions. All variants can be sealed on any standard vacuum chamber machine. The company’s in-house laboratory and application technology centre enables us to develop and test individual bag solutions in cooperation with BREVAC and ALLVAC.
