Steam valve

January 1, 2011




Used for precooked foods such as sauces, rice, dumplings and noodles, the Avery Dennison Flexis Steam self-venting valve actuates at a predetermined temperature during the cooking process to allow a precise amount of steam to escape from the package. Depending on the baffle configuration designed into the valve, more or less steam is permitted to escape. Applied at the package converting stage, the valve is clear, and can be printed with 1-color text, graphics and logos.
