Flat pouches: slim multi-talents
WHAT ARE FLAT POUCHES?
Flat pouches are pouch packaging without a bottom. Unlike Doypacks (stand-up pouches), they are therefore not stand-up. Instead, they are designed for laying or hanging presentation, for example via Euro slot hangers at the point of sale. Flat pouches are usually made of polypropylene and polyethylene. The tear-resistant bag walls are sealed or welded on three sides - with the exception of the opening. After filling, this can be sealed by hand sealer or heat sealer.
WHAT CHARACTERIZES FLAT POUCHES?
A STRONG BARRIER:
As plastic packaging, flat pouches are characterized by an outstanding barrier function. And this works in both directions - inside and outside. So everything stays exactly where it belongs: water vapor, oxygen or aroma.
Whether the packaged goods are food or non-food is just as irrelevant as the shape of the contents: Fine-grained powders and liquids are just as securely packed in them as capsules, granules and solid objects.
FOOD SAFE MATERIALS:
The materials used are food-safe and meet all the requirements of the HACCP guidelines for food packaging. This makes our flat pouches suitable even for sensitive, perishable goods.
Flat pouches offer a wide range of configuration and design options. While features such as tear-off flaps and zippers ensure convenient handling, the full-surface print and transparent viewing windows are convincing on an aesthetic level.
TARE WEIGHT AND MATERIALS:
Since the pouches are made of very thin, but tear-resistant foils, their own weight and material requirements are very low compared to other types of packaging. In some cases, the plastic packaging is even the more sustainable option.
EXAMPLES OF USE:
Flat pouches are used in numerous industries today. Thanks to the excellent barrier function, the tight seal and the HACCP-compliant materials, almost any type of product can be safely packaged in our flat pouches. Examples are:
- Food and luxury food
e.g. tea, spices, chewing gum and sweets
- Pet food
e.g. dry and wet cat or dog food
e.g. face masks, soaps and product samples
- Nutritional supplements
e.g. protein powders and vitamin capsules
- Medical and pharmaceutical products
e.g. mouth-nose protection, CBD capsules
- Industrial products
e.g. screws and spare parts
Design & Configuration
Good packaging offers more than just product protection. Today, design and simplicity of use are just as important in convincing target groups of the benefits of a product. The appearance of the packaging, for example, is decisive for whether a product is noticed and considered in the store in the first place.
Similarly, functional design plays a significant role. In addition to the presentation options on the sales floor, the consumer habits of the customers must also be taken into account. But even with just a few features such as perforated hangers, tear-off flaps and zippers, your flat pouches are ideally equipped for any situation.
PRACTICAL FEATURES FOR FLAT POUCHES SLOT HANGERS:
HOLE SUSPENSION: A hole or Euro slot hanging system allows you to hang and present flat pouches wherever appropriate hooks are available - such as in the checkout area or on sales displays.
TEAR-OFF TAB: With the help of a tear-off flap, our pouches can be opened easily and conveniently by the customer - even on the go and without scissors. The tab is positioned at the top of the pouch, just below the hole suspension.
ZIPPER: Zippers are placed even slightly lower than the tear-off flaps. In this way, all three features can be optimally combined if desired. The zipper can be used to reseal the flat pouches - ideal for contents that are to be taken along or not used up immediately.
FREE CHOICE FROM SEVEN MATERIALS
The choice of material is one of the most important decisions you make when configuring your flat pouches. This is because you influence their protective properties, appearance, feel and recyclability. The best choice depends entirely on your goals. There are seven materials to choose from at packaging warehouse:
- Foil laminate white (PET/EVOH/PE)
- Foil composite transparent (PET/EVOH/PE)
- Foil laminate silver-metallic (PET/PE)
- Natural paper white + PE
- Natural paper brown + PE
- Mono foil white
- Mono foil transparent
TRANSPARENTE MATERIALIEN FÜR SICHTFENSTER
Composite materials combine different materials with each other - and therefore also their specific characteristics. Foil composites form a particularly strong barrier against external influences such as oxygen and moisture, but also against loss of aroma.
RECYCLABLE PACKAGING MATERIALS
Are you looking for sustainable packaging? Then monofoils or a composite of paper and PE are a good choice. Both alternatives are 100 percent recyclable. Our pouches with a paper surface are not only sustainable, but also provide the right look and feel. And you don't have to compromise on design, because the print colors look even brighter on a white or transparent surface.
TRANSPARENT MATERIALS FOR VIEWING WINDOWS
Transparent materials offer the opportunity to equip your pouches with viewing windows. The desired area is simply cut out during printing. This allows your product to be inspected even when packaged - and so becomes part of the design itself. This means even more design options for you.
GLOSSY OR MATTE SURFACES
With our foil composites, you have the choice between a matte or glossy surface. Our monofoils, on the contrary, are glossy as standard. And with a paper-foil composite, the surface always consists of untreated paper.
All our materials used are high quality, food safe and HACCP compliant. However, each product is unique and may be subject to special requirements. Therefore, depending on the area of application of the flat pouches, we recommend filler-specific laboratory tests.
FORMATS - MADE TO MEASURE AND WISH
At packaging warehouse we manufacture flat pouches in various sizes and formats. Simply choose between one of our fixed standard formats or a free desired format:
- 80 x 120 mm
- 120 x 150 mm
- 150 x 170 mm
- 190 x 270 mm
- 290 x 340 mm
- Length: 80 bis 500 mm
- Height: 120 bis 380 mm
Tip: The fixed formats are all oriented in portrait format. However, pouches in landscape format are still possible. Simply select the "free format" option in the configurator and enter the desired dimensions.
Important: Note that the actual filling height differs from the pouch height. How much? That depends on whether you have selected additional features such as a zipper, a tear-off flap or a hole suspension.
The following distances must be observed:
- between top edge and zipper: 40 mm
- between top edge and tear-off flap: 21 mm
- between top edge and hole suspension: 16 mm
FULL-SURFACE & DIGITAL PRINTING
As far as packaging design is concerned, there are almost no limits to your creativity when it comes to designing flat pouches. Because regardless of the material and the desired features, our pouches can be printed over the entire surface - with all Euroscale colors.
For transparent pouches, we can also add white to the four-color print on request - for an even more brilliant print image.
Whether color, pattern or text, with the help of modern digital printing we achieve a printed image on both plastic and paper surfaces that impresses with rich colors and razor-sharp contours.
Even varying imprints can be realized. In this way, you can print your pouches with changing motives within just one print run and even personalize the packaging, for example with the names of your customers.
Since digital printing (unlike offset printing
) does not require the manufacture of printing plates or similar aids, there are no additional tooling costs or delays.
BUY UNPRINTED FLAT POUCHES
Of course, you can also order completely unprinted flat pouches from us. Simply select the "unprinted" option in the configurator. Such pouches can be flexibly and individually designed with matching roll labels,
