English term or phrase: Velcro
It's the material used for seal/fastening:
"The new Velcro Seal developed specifically for .., keeps the pouch sealed at all times.."

Should I use the transliterated form for the name ie فيلكرو or does anyone know an alternative?

Thanks

It is a Trademark so you have to transliterate it.
