It can not only effectively avoid external adverse factors, such as microbial corrosion, chemical pollution, oxidation and other hazards, ensure the quality and safety of food during storage and transportation, and prolong its shelf life, but also play a promotional role for food manufacturers. . Therefore, to a large extent, packaging bags have become an integral part of various foods.

This has also greatly driven the market of packaging bags. In order to occupy a place in the food packaging bag market, major manufacturers have continuously improved the quality of packaging materials and derived a variety of food packaging bags. To a large extent, this has brought a choice problem to food manufacturers.

However, the characteristics of different foods are different, so the protective requirements of different foods are also different. For example, tea is easy to be oxidized, damp and moldy, and requires good sealing, high oxygen resistance, and good hygroscopicity. If the selected material does not meet the characteristics, the quality of the tea cannot be guaranteed.
