plastic bag; thermosealed PE film


Explanation:
Depending on what this Folienbeutel is made of and how technical the translation is I would choose one or the other: Choose plastic bag in a simple and straightforward solution, or use thermosealed PE film or something along those lines, depending on the actual material used, if your text and audience are more technical.

Cheerio,
Dierk
