About us

Established in Manchester in 1988, Protective Packaging Ltd has grown to become a world-leading packaging supplier of climatic packaging solutions to manufacturers in a wide variety of industries.

We are an ISO 9001:2015 accredited manufacturer specialising in total climatic solutions to prevent moisture damage whilst reducing supply chain costs – Manufacturing a range of aluminium barrier foil liners from F.I.B.C’s and drums to 2 and 3-dimensional bags. All aspects of quality from raw materials to final heat seals are controlled to ensure the right products each and every time.

Being a part of 3D Barrier Bags Inc. has enabled us to become the only company in its field with manufacturing capabilities on either side of the Atlantic, allowing us to serve your global needs.

Aluminium Barrier Foil: 

Aluminium Barrier Foil protects any product from deterioration due to moisture, oxygen ingress, U.V. light, temperature extremes, odours and much more.

The performance of Aluminium Barrier Laminates is determined by their Moisture Vapour Transmission rate (W.V.T.R.), which at <0.01gm/m²/24hr for the laminate itself and less than <0.05gm/m²/24hrs for converted laminate, is lower than any known flexible packaging material.

To compare Polyethylene, with a thickness of 125um, allows water vapour and aggressive gasses to diffuse at a rate of up to 4gms/m²/24hr which is 80 times faster!

Within a heat-sealed Aluminium Barrier Foil Bag, a calculated amount of desiccant can be added to ensure that the relative humidity (RH) remains well below 40% – the starting point for corrosion. A 25um layer of Aluminium even improves on these figures.


The Protective Packaging name has become synonymous with quality and peace of mind, which have come through understanding the products that we protect and the properties of the materials available to us.
