Features of EdgeStand
Stand-up ability A skirt around the bottom of the pouch extends along the surface of each panel of the pouch and supports its stand-up ability.
Contents The entire pouch, including the skirt, is made from a single sheet of laminated film, so the pouch can hold powders and liquids, as well as solids. (Liquids compatible with pre-made pouches)
Material Composition The high barrier construction and various paper combinations make for a material with a great amount of freedom in its composition.
Environmentally-friendly This light-weight packaging serves as an environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional paper, plastic and metal containers.
Various Shapes Various bottom shapes, such as rectangular, oval and triangular can be produced. Also, the width of the bottom skirt can be adjusted, allowing for further variation in appearance.
Filling The pouch may be filled by using either a VFFS or HFFS system (film roll supply), as well as by using a rotary filling machine (pre-made pouch supply).
