Pouches can take any structure, from a simple monolayer of PE to laminates including PET, LLDPE, LDPE, MDPE, HDPE, OPA, SiOX, AlOX, PP, OPP, CPP, MPP and Paper.
Pouches are very much on trend as they continue to replace rigid packaging due to their strength, aesthetics, cost and environmental credentials.
For example, a plastic film pouch used to deliver concentrated fabric softener is 85 percent lower in weight and volume than a comparable plastic bottle, yet it delivers the same quantity of softener to the consumer (Flexible Packaging Association).In addition, when dropped, a pouch will maintain its form and not break.
Less energy used in manufacture means less cost for the client. Pouches are more flexible during the filling process too, as they can run on specific machinery or be hand filled. In fact, with minimal investment in a small sealing bar (less than £100), you can pack products at home! We can help you find a packer if required, which is recommended for all food grade and liquid products.
