Mylar Drum Liners High Barrier, Heavy Duty Drum Liners BayTec’s protective drum liners are manufactured from high-barrier foil Mylar laminate and have a flat, round bottom that allows them to conform to the interior of drums and pails. Unlike clear poly drum inserts, these Mylar versions drastically increase shelf life while protecting contents from water, moisture, vapor, light, and oxygen. In addition to protecting contents, these barrel liners protect barrels themselves, converting any drum or pail to a food-safe storage container.

BayTec stocks standard sizes for 5 and 55-gallon drums, in a heavy-duty 5 mils thick proprietary material, and can custom produce foil drum liners in a variety of sizes and materials.

Q & A's

Questions & Answers about 55 Gallon Mylar Plastic Bag - Heat Sealable

Question: Can you put hot water in these for backpacking trips....re-hydrating foods? are they FDA approved? By Mike F.
Answer: Hot, but not "boiling". FDA does not regulate specific food packaging (or for that matter, storage, or preparation) products, just the materials (in general) they're are
Question: Can these be used with a FoodSaver system? Tim B.
Answer: No they can't be used with a Food Saver because they food saver doesn't get hot enough for this type of plastic. Mylar bags can be sealed with a clothes iron. That's what I use.
Question: Once a Mylar bag is heat sealed, can it be pulled open or is using scissors the only way to open it? John S.
Answer: Scissors only. I've tried; they are tough. My opinion - it is better to get the Ziploc ones
Question: Are the o2 absorbers needed or would creating a good vacuum, or using an inert gas work just as good? Mary F.
Answer: Vacuum sealing or using a Nitrogen flush technique should be effective and just fine. O2 Absorbers are just a practical way to make your items stay fresh if you do not have access to what is often very expensive machinery. Any standard method for preservation should work just fine if done correctly.
