All About Dispensary Mylar® BagsYousef Arman
Dispensary Mylar® bags are an essential packaging supply for pharmacies and dispensaries. But what is Mylar®?
What is Mylar®?
Mylar® is a brand name, rather than a product itself. It is a registered trademark owned by DuPont Teijin Films and refers to specific products.
Mylar® is a plastic sheet or stretched polyester film available in various thicknesses, styles, and finishes. The product is correctly named biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate.
It has an array of appealing properties, including:
- Chemical stability
- High tensile strength
- Electric insulator
Mylar® was first developed by DuPont, ICI, and Hoechst in the 1950s, and was famously used to construct the NASA Echo II balloon satellite which was launched in 1964. The Echo II was crafted from Mylar film between layers of thick aluminum foil.
Due to its inherent physical properties, Mylar® polyester film is highly suited for packaging, printing, barrier protection, die-cutting, protective overlays, and electronics. It can be used for:
- Making cards more resistant to wear and tear
- Medical devices including x-ray film and test strips
- Pharmacy packaging materials
- Enhancing glass in terms of scratch-resistance, UV-resistance, etc
- The coating on electronic displays
- Printing – inkjet, digital, photographic, lithography, screen printing, etc
- Durable, heat- and tear-resistant labels
- Magnetic recording media – microfiche, hard disk systems, backup tapes, etc
- Industrial applications for heat resistance to 440 degrees Fahrenheit
- Space blankets
- Coffee foil pouches
- Shiny helium balloons
- Yogurt lids
- Roasting bags
- Decorative paper
- Dry food storage
Why use Mylar® Dispensary Bags?
Even when you are selling or dispensing cannabis legally, and your customers are purchasing it legally, there are still state laws with which you must comply. Many states require that all cannabis be dispensed in opaque packaging. Packaging your product in smell-proof, opaque dispensary Mylar® bags protects your customers – providing privacy, discretion, and security against unnecessary questions.
These bags also protect the product itself:
- Eliminating evaporation and moisture loss
- Maintaining purchase volume/weight
- Maintaining potency
- Protection from contamination
- Protection from sunlight, heat, and cold
Mylar® bags are also beneficial for extending the shelf life of your inventory, keeping flowers fresh, and dispensing your product in a quality way in keeping with your brand.
Additionally, many of these bags are tamper-evident, child-proof, and zip-lockable/resealable.
