FLEXIBLE BARRIER PACKAGING

Flexible Barrier packaging is any packaging that preserves or protects the contents of the package to maintain freshness, extend shelf life, and prevent damage to the contents in a non-rigid form. Flexible barrier packaging is generally made from laminated layers or multi-layer of barrier films. The specific combination of flexible plastics, aluminum, paper, and coating create different technical barrier characteristics. By altering the combination of materials the packaging can reduce the transmission of water vapor, and gas migration into or out of the package. PouchWorth specializes flexible barrier packaging solutions to meet the needs of our customers.

Flexible barrier packaging comes in various forms, from stand up pouches, to spouted bags, lay flat bags, and tubing.

flexible barrier packaging shelf life extension is required

FLEXIBLE BARRIER SHELF LIFE

How long is your product going to be in the package? How much shelf life extension is required? How important is freshness? Consider two examples: Corn Chip vs. Dried berries Corn chips are usually, packaged in economical medium to low barrier materials because they are generally consumed quickly, nobody expects chips to have a extensive shelf life, are low margin retail items that must be economically packaged. In comparison, dried berries are a higher price point item, that needs longer shelf life, and stability, and are usually not consumed at one time.

flexible barrier packaging pouch bag purpose

FLEXIBLE BARRIER PACKAGING’S PURPOSE

On a basic level barrier packaging is an atmosphere modifying device designed to create a sealed environment inside the package. To many “barrier packaging” is generally thought of as controlling migration of oxygen into or out of the package environment. Oxygen and oxidation along with desiccation are major causes of damage to food’s appearance and freshness and deterioration, exposure to other external influences also have an impact. In relation to atmosphere modification, barrier packaging is designed to protect from:

Flexible barrier packaging has many advantages over other forms of barrier packaging. It is light weight, has a lower cost, offers consumers convience in portioning, and can provide equal barrier to most rigid containers. Finally, flexibles can be more easily customized to each specific application. Its all about striking a balance

flexible barrier packaging reduces the oxidative effects by removing oxygen

MODIFIED ATMOSPHERE FLEXIBLE BARRIER PACKAGING

The combination of a barrier film such as a PET/AL/LLDPE along with gas flushing in which a normal air is taken out of the package during packing, and replaced with an inert gas such as nitrogen or carbon dioxide. Popular with Cannabis, dried fruits, nuts, chips, and snacks. This process reduces the oxidative effects by removing oxygen.

FLEXIBLE VACUUM PACKAGING

Vacuum packaging removes the oxygen and does not replace it. Most consumers are familiar with vacuum packing as a preservation method. For Vacuum packaging applications you must use materials that have physical conformity, and strong seals to prevent oxygen from creeping inside.
