Flexis® One-Way Valves

Flexis® One-Way Valves for coffee, fresh dough and pet food

Flexis one-way packaging valves are a new degassing valve that can be attached to multiple package styles. It preserves the freshness of coffee and fresh dough by letting gas out but not oxygen in. Using Flexis valves simplifies the packaging process by eliminating a step in packaging operation normally needed when using ordinary valves. Flexis valves also help stabilize large palletized packages by degassing quickly and not allowing infestation back into the package.
