The Stand Up Pouch, also known as Doypacks, is a packaging pouch capable of standing on its own and is incorporated with a zip-lock closure to ensure the freshness of the inner content of the pouch. The Stand Up Pouch has become increasingly popular amongst the many different packaging solutions due to its flexibility and customisability, making it the go-to packaging solution for industries for F&B, household items, pet food and many more.
Unlike typical pouches such as glass bottles or cardboard boxes, the Stand Up Pouch consumes a lesser amount of resources, resulting in a low manufacturing cost.
Properties of the Stand Up Pouch
The Stand Up Pouch is manufactured from several layers of barrier materials that can be classified into 3 main groups, which comes together to provide the pouch with durable and puncture-resistant characteristics. These 3 groups are:
Outer Layer: Allows printing of graphic to take place, carrying advertising which communicates a brand message and appeals to consumers.
Middle Layer: Acts as a protective barrier to ensure that the content of the pouch is kept safe and fresh.
Inner Layer: The most important layer amongst the three. This layer is usually FDA approved to ensure that food is safe when coming in contact with the packaging. It is also heat-sealable to assure customers that the pouch has not been tampered with.
The Stand Up Pouch also allows customisable features such as zippers, top holes, tear notches and spouts to enhance its performance.
