New Solution for Stand-Up Pouches
Total's Lumicene Supertough, a specially designed metallocene polyethylene resin, is the latest evolution in product development for film extrusion. It generates added value with its superior mechanical properties, downgauging potential, excellent bubble stability and peak output. These characteristics make the material especially suitable for stand-up pouches as a new flexible packaging option.
Total, Windmöller & Hölscher and Coveris collaborated along the value chain from resin to final product to create a perfect stand-up pouch, which was showcased at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany. The three companies are leaders in their respective fields and, together, provided the perfect solution: the right formula for 25% downgauging potential with Total’s new Lumicene Supertough grade; the optimal machine setup for highest output with Windmöller & Hölscher’s machinery and software; and, for this project, Coveris’ lamination and pouch making expertise.
The increase in the number of uses for stand-up pouches as well as the overall increase in demand for them explains the importance of this packaging solution to brand owners and consumers. Manufacturers strive to find the best productivity and performance of the stand-up pouch, and, according to the manufacturere, Lumicene Supertough provides the ideal solution.
