Vacuum packing non-food

Enjoy all the benefits of storage, protection, transport and durability

The ideal packaging

Vacuum sealing goes much further than packaging food products alone. Vacuum packaging also presents interesting possibilities for the protection and optimisation of various non-food products. Whether packaging less voluminous products such as sneakers, maintaining the effectiveness of medicines, or protecting machine components against oxidation, dust and dirt, the advantages of vacuum packaging your non-food products are endless.

Advantages of non-food vacuum packing

Free from dirt, moisture and dust

Vacuum packing provides an airtight barrier against dust, dirt and moisture. This protects your product from all kinds of external factors, which is especially important for sensitive, non-food products. 

Compact storage and transport

Vacuum packing removes almost all the air from a package. This logically reduces the size of the package. A more compact size generates more space for storage and you can transport more products at the same time. 

Maintenance of quality and life span

Vacuum packing provides protection against moisture, oxidation and – in an aluminium bag – also light. This ensures that non-food, sensitive products will retain their quality for longer. 

Protection against pests

The robust, airtight packaging of non-food items ensures that almost nothing can damage your product. 

Reduced waste

The absence of air means that non-food products are protected against rust. This means they can be kept in storage for longer. 

Vacuum packing non-food products

Vacuum packing non-food products is simple. Choose the right bag for your product, select the correct program and initiate the vacuuming process. For products with sharp edges, soft air creates the ideal conditions to prevent damage to the bag. If you are using an aluminium bag, the bi-active seal ensures that the bag is sealed on both sides.

Soft air

This enables the optimal vacuum packing of sharp or sensitive products without damaging the product or vacuum bag.

Frequently asked questions


How do I vacuum pack sharp objects?

To prevent sharp objects from tearing through the vacuum bag, it is best to use the soft air function. This is available on all Henkelman vacuum packing machines except the Jumbo.  


How do I vacuum pack a product with trapped air?

For non-food products it is not necessary to set a very deep final vacuum. If your product contains a lot of trapped air, such as cardboard, clothing or filters, we advise you to choose a lower vacuum setting.
