FLEXIBLE PACKING FILM FAQS

What is flexible packaging?

Non-rigid packaging structures used to package and protect products. According to the Flexible Packaging Association, flexible packaging is any package or any part of a package whose shape can be readily changed. Common examples of flexible packaging are bags and pouches.

What is converting?

Converting is simply changing something into a different form. In the case of flexible packaging, converting would be the process of utilizing films, foils and resins and through the process of lamination, forming them into a multilayer structure.

Do you form and fill packages?

No, we supply custom-engineered, printed or unprinted:

  • multilayer flexible packaging rollstock
  • premade pouches (such as stand-up pouches) which are formed, filled, and sealed by contract packaging companies or by manufacturers with packaging equipment

We work with an extensive network of contract packaging companies and can refer you to a contract packaging company if you need forming, filling, and sealing capabilities.

Why is product/package compatibility testing strongly suggested for products without a known history in a flexible packaging structure?

Product/package compatibility testing is a screening process to determine if a given product might have any adverse effects on the packaging structure. The most common adverse effect is a reduction in the adhesion levels between the layers of the structure. The reduction in adhesion levels can range from slightly noticeable to full delamination. The more severe the interlayer adhesion level reduction, the more difficult it will be to tear open the package and the lower the package burst strength will be. The product/packaging compatibility testing will help to determine the most cost effective structure for the product.
