Flexible Packaging and Flexible PLA Film

Their features

Flexible packaging film consists of the highest quality materials and works effectively and consistently throughout the product's life cycle. It utilizes flexible substrates, including paper and plastic films. Its growing popularity is due to superior performance, including clarity, twist retention and excellent shrinkage.

Technical excellence

An example of flexible packaging is the stand-up pouch. The latter are made from multiple layers of plastic, aluminum and other materials. The advantage of stand-up pouches is that they protect food from the environmental and physical hazards encountered during the transportation and storage phases. Flexible food packaging can come in a variety of designs to appeal to buyers. Zipper locks and nozzles can be added for better convenience and usability.

Reduced Costs

By choosing flexible packaging, manufacturing costs are greatly reduced. Flexible packaging materials are made by laminating multiple layers of film together. The time, energy and material costs to manufacture flexible packaging film are much lower than traditional glass and plastic cans.

Their aims

Flexible packaging films are designed to do the following:

Make the outer packaging more resistant to tearing

Shield the contents during the packaging, distribution and storage phases

Protect the contents from external spoilage factors such as light, moisture and gases

Preserve the quality of the contents, including freshness and aroma
