When Materials Matter
Barrier films protect your product from the impact of oxidation, moisture, and unpleasant odors that can affect its quality. All of our pouches are made with high-barrier material with an oxygen transfer rate (OTR) of .06 to .065.
We offer pouches in the following materials:
- Clear Barrier Film is excellent for showing products off to customers and has the additional benefit of being crease- and crack-proof;
- White Barrier Film offers a good solid background for full-color printing; and
- Metallized Barrier Film is a polymer film coated on one side with a layer of aluminum to give it a glossy silvery appearance.
Each of these materials has the following properties in production:
|Film Type||Clear Barrier Film||White Barrier Film||Metallized Barrier Film|
|Average Thickness||4.6 mil.||4.6 mil.||3.1 mil|
|Oxygen Transfer Rate (OTR)||<0.5||<0.5||<0.8|
|Construction||48ga. PET/3.0 mil. EVOH Coex/Ink/Laminate||48ga. PET/3.0 mil. EVOH Coex/Ink/Laminate||48ga. MET PET/1.5 mil. mLLDPE/Ink/Laminate|
|Printing||Full-color with window||Full-color||Full-color metallized|
|White Ink Printing||Yes, included||Not applicable||Yes, but optional|
Note that all three film types are ideal for food items and can be used for both dry and liquid contents.
You can opt to add either of these coatings for additional shine or protection:
- Gloss lamination adds a brilliant shine to the surface while making images more striking; or
- Matte lamination which gives a satin-like texture and makes any text easy to read.
The zippers for these pouches are 10mm in height and centered vertically at 1.5” from the top trim.
Round or Euro-style hang-holes for suspended display can be punched 1/4” from the top rim of each package.
Tear notches on both sides of the top for easy opening are automatically included.
