What is stand up pouch packaging?

stand up pouchesThe stand up pouch is a light and space-saving form of packaging with a wide range of uses, plus specially co-ordinated material features. In comparison with hard packaging, it is characterised by cost and environmental protection advantages.

What different packaging formats are there?

The Elliott Packaging resealable pouch range covers pouch sizes with a capacity of 100 – 10,000 ml. Depending on the products’ requirements and specific weights and the pouch size, different film types or film thicknesses are used in the substrate and also the barrier and seal layers can be produced in various films that will suit the application. They therefore offer various barriers and thereby guarantee the products’ shelf life.

So what equipment is involved?

A stand up pouch can be manufactured on several production lines depending on the customer’s wishes. For example, special forms include stand up pouches with different carrying handle designs, with special side and/or bottom contours and with resealable closures (zippers/grip-seals).

The pouches can additionally be equipped with spouts. If you supply liquid based products, please take a look at our spouted pouches. These are specifically created for liquid-based products.

Throughout development, Elliott Packaging works closely together with customers and the intended filling technology in order to bring optimal stand up pouches into circulation.
