Vacuum seal sharp products with Soft Air

Normal aeration versus Soft Air

After the bag has been sealed, the air returns into the chamber. As soon as the atmospheric pressure inside equals the pressure outside the chamber, the lid opens. With Soft Air, this occurs gradually, so the vacuum bag gently envelopes the product. For optimal protection of product and bag. Particularly suitable for products with sharp edges.
