Customized Packaging Solutions

  • Many flexible packaging manufacturers offer a standard “menu” of flexible packaging materials. Not Glenroy. We excel at customizing high-quality, cost-effective packaging material for your products.
  • Glenroy’s packaging film is manufactured for a wide variety of configurations with opening features preferred by consumers, such as resealable stand-up pouches, stickpacks, sample packaging, unit-dose packaging, magazine or mailer inserts, bottleneck samples with coupons, etc.
  • We’ll customize a multilayer packaging solution to protect and enhance your product, ranging from aluminum foil laminates, high-barrier clear and opaque film laminates, paper laminates, to coextruded films.
Layers

Materials Selection

A typical flexible packaging film laminate consists of five layers:

Exterior Layer
  • Provides dimensionally stable print surface
  • Protects the ink
  • Protects the barrier layer
  • Plays a role in burst strength & tear resistance
  • Adds to overall pouch strength
Tie Layer
  • Provides another layer of protection for the barrier layer
  • Bonds the outside layer to the barrier layer
  • Hides the color of the barrier layer
Barrier layer
  • Provides chemical resistance
  • Prevents moisture, light, and oxygen transmission
Tie Layer
  • Bonds the foil to the sealant layer film
  • Provides protection to the barrier layer
Sealant Layer
  • Makes the structure heat sealable
  • Contributes to burst strength
  • Helps contain the product
  • Protects the barrier layer

Based on your products’ chemical compatibility, barrier requirements, appearance, economy, regulatory requirements, expected life cycle, packaging equipment, and distribution method, we’ll suggest the ideal flexible packaging structure for your application.

High-barrier Applications

Various ingredients in your products may interact with packaging materials and affect your products’ quality and integrity.

Glenroy has earned a reputation in the packaging industry for having the expertise to manufacture packaging for these “hard-to-hold” products (products that require packaging with exceptional gas barrier and chemical resistance properties).

  1. First, we’ll analyze the ingredients of your products and suggest packaging materials most compatible with your products.
  2. Then, we’ll test the packaging materials for compatibility with your products in our on-site package engineering lab.
