As flexible packaging becomes more and more common and desirable in today’s market, pouch packaging is emerging as one of the most important new packaging solutions in many different industries – particularly stand-up pouches.
But with new opportunities come new challenges. At Pearl Technologies, we’re here to help. We understand the challenges facing packaging companies creating pouch packaging – and we have the solutions you need to form strong seals, cut clean edges, punch hanger holes, add tear notches, and more.
Understanding Common Types And Applications Of Pouch Packaging
Typically, laminated pouches are made from plastic films like PE, which is the most common, as well as PET, laminates, and some types of metal foils. While the majority of pouches are heat sealed, there are some types that are bonded with adhesives, as well. Common types of pouches include:
- Stand up
- 3 Side
- Quad seal
- Fin seal
Thanks to their versatility, pouches are used in almost every single industry – from the automotive industry to chemicals, dairy products, drinks, medicinal products, ready-to-eat meals, pet food and treats, produce, snack foods, and so much more.
The Benefits Of Pouch Packaging
Why are pouch packages so popular? There are a few reasons that more brands than ever are ditching traditional rigid packaging and turning to stand-up pouches and other types of flexible pouches.
- Pouches are lightweight while still providing excellent product integrity
- Pouches are easy to store and transport, both for vendors and end-users
- Most pouches are easy to carry and reseal, making them more versatile than single-use bags and other types of packages
- Pouches are an inexpensive packaging solution compared to other alternatives
