Our pouch and stand-up pouch adhesives, based on two-component polyurethane technology, help solve packaging challenges and enable you to:
- Improve package food safety with BPA-free, Cyclic-ester safe (no NPG), GLYMO-free, and PAA or PAA EU 10/2011-free solutions
- Increase performance, quality and functionality due to strong resistance to mechanical stress (C1, C10, CX), chemicals and high temperatures, even when used as internal layer to all substrates
- Reduce cost-in-use and enhance efficiency via a modular system for easy changing from C1 to C10 to CX co-reactants and due to a room temperature curing aliphatic system CX
Frequently Asked Questions about Pouches & Stand-up Pouches Adhesives
What is stand-up pouch packaging?
Stand-up pouch packaging is a form of packaging with a horizontal structure at the bottom, allowing it to stand independently. Stand-up pouches and pouches are widely used in food packaging, beverage packaging, industrial packaging, necessities packaging, cosmetic packaging, etc.
These packaging can be resealable. For pouches or stand-up pouches packaging resealable with a zipper, Bostik adhesive is applied to the backing of the zipper, which is then heat-sealed to make the end package.
Why are pouches and stand-up pouches suitable for fruit juice packaging?
Stand-up pouches are primarily used to pack liquid or pasty products. This packaging is small, easy to carry, lightweight, and provides a larger printing area. These packages are also appreciated for their transparent design possibilities. As a result, stand-up bags frequently replace plastic bottles and cans. Pouches and stand-up pouches will be more widely used in the future. The use of accessories such as spouts has even broadened the potential of their applications.
What are stand-up pouches made of?
Pouches and stand-up pouches can be made from various materials and structures (duplex, triplex, quadruplex structures, PE, PP, BOPET, BOPP, OPA, PETmet, Siox, Alox, and so on). The conventional composite system is a thick PE film composed of a laminate bonded to a back-faced BOPET or POPA substrate.
How to make eco-friendly pouches and stand-up pouches packaging?
100% polyethylene pouches and stand-up pouches can be recycled entirely. Bostik SF10M, a solvent-free polyurethane laminating adhesive, can be recycled. Test results confirmed that this adhesive is suitable for recycling in a polyethylene (PE) film stream when used in the right conditions.
