Elif introduces new pre-made pouch solution

PKBR Staff Writer Published 09 April 2018

Flexible packaging solutions provider Elif has introduced a new pre-made pouch solution, Elif2Pouch.

Elif2Pouch is a 100% recyclable polyethylene (PE) stand-up pouch solution. It supports consumer recycling with other polyethylene materials, helping to avoid the need of lamination with other substrates.

The neo-eco packaging solution will help brand owners to achieve the 2030 recycling goals of the European Commission.

Neo-eco packaging helps to improve the functionality, performance, cost-efficiency and ecological credentials, while using the new materials and technologies at the same time.

The new pre-made pouch solution can be used in food and beverage, pet food, home care, beauty and personal care applications.

With enhanced sealing capability, better puncture and tear resistance, the new pouch is available with a range of reclosability and spout options.

The pre-made pouch solution will also preserve freshness and aroma of food products due to its high moisture and customizable aroma barrier properties.

Elif2Pouch is said to be the next generation solution for the pre-made bags and pouches, and ensures energy savings in recycling compared against packaging materials that require high recycling temperatures.

The lightweight structure of the new pouch solution also reduces storage and transportation costs compared to conventional pouch packaging solutions.

According to the company, Elif2Pouch offers up to three times more performance in strength, moisture barrier and optical properties compared against conventional packaging solutions available in market.

In November 2017, Elif introduced new PE film, ElifHyPEr, for flexible packaging applications.

ElifHyPEr can be used in different flexible packaging applications such as stand-up pouches, in-mold labels, shrink sleeves, draw string tapes, cereal and cracker packaging.

Its applications also include sealant wraps, twist wraps, tapes, frozen food packaging, barrier packaging, liners, heavy duty bags and lamination replacement.

Elif provides packaging solutions for different sectors, including food and beverages, household care, personal care, pet care and others.
