Flat bottom pouches, also called box pouches, can take all laminate structures including PET, LLDPE, LDPE, MDPE, HDPE, OPA, SiOX, AlOX, PP, OPP, CPP, MPP and Paper. Evolution and innovation have culminated in a very exciting pack which is fast becoming the pack of choice for premium brands.
The pack is similar to the quad seal bags in the sense that it has two side gussets with four seals. However the bottom of this pack is perfectly flat which ensures it always stands upright on shelf and in the home. In addition it is the perfect area to print any further marketing messages or branding.
This bag is made from multiple plastic webs (multiple reels of film) which increase its strength and seal integrity to form a truly premium pack. Due to its shape and size they are easily packed in boxes for palletisation and retailers are fond of the format as it minimises the risk of pack breakage and remains stable on shelf.
A further evolution of this bag is known as the ‘single lip’ and is demonstrated in the images adjacent. In essence, at the top of the bag the four seals become two to create a more imposing looking bag on shelf. The benefits of the single lip are more consumer related, as the pack maintains its ability to stand up when the product inside is being used.
From a branding point of view, this also enable the bag to always be delivering any marketing on pack to anyone looking at it. The maximum recommended product weight for these packs is 6KG. Filling these bags is very easy and minimal investment in a sealing bar (less than £100) can start you packing straight away! We can help you find a packer if required, which is recommended for all food grade and liquid products.
