how it works


BioShield™ Containment Systems are engineered to permanently protect distinguished mausoleums from leaks, odors, and flies by isolating the natural byproducts of decomposition in an uncomplicated, airtight container.

Our containment system is simple, safe, and easy to use- made from the finest materials packaging science has to offer. Our formula for the problem-free final resting place is made up of 3 components:

Barrier Material + Hermetic Seals + ZipSeal Closure




In packaging science, flexible barrier materials are used to fully stop the permeation of gases and liquids. The material acts as a barrier in both directions, so nothing can pass in or out of a flexible barrier package.

A typical barrier material consists of three layers:

  1.  Outer Protective Layer
  2.  Foil Barrier Layer
  3. Inner Sealant Layer


A hermetic seal is one that bonds two polymers (or two pieces of material) together through the application of heat, for a specific amount of time and at a specific pressure. This type of seal protects against the flow of gasses and liquids, making it the perfect way to seal our Biolam material when making a BioShield container.

BioShield containers are made from our proprietary, flexible barrier material, called Biolam. It is a laminated material made up of four layers:

  1. Outer Protective Layer
  2. Woven Tear-Resistant Layer
    Fiberglass woven scrim with 100 fiber intersections per square inch
  3. Foil Barrier Layer
    5 times thicker than the industry standard
  4. Inner Sealant Layer
    Polyethylene film, made from custom-blended polymer resins

Together these layers provide superior heat-seal characteristics. Sealed together they completely eliminate the possibility of leaking odors and liquids, forming a hermetic seal.


ZipSeal is our patented zipper closure system that provides a fast, safe, easy, and strong closure method. Zipper tracks are pre-installed on the top and bottom covers. A positive locking, mechanical closure seals the zip ends, creating an air-tight entombment.
