High Barrier Pouches are made up of high performance barrier resins and films which provide highly protective environment to the material inside of the pouch and increase its shelf life. High barrier pouches are capable of preventing access of any foreign agent inside of the pouch, whether it is a flavor, aroma or a gas. These pouches are also suitable for pasteurized and sterile application. Due to their enhanced physical, chemical, mechanical and thermal properties, high barrier pouches can be used for hot as well as cold filling and can be customized in different shapes and sizes accordingly. Besides, high barrier pouches provide very good seal reliability for optimal product safety and convenience, and adjustable peelability to the consumers. To manufacturers, high barrier pouches provide excellent output on high speed machines and good compatibility with different sterilization techniques.
High barrier pouches also play a key role during transportation of the packed materials. Products packaged in high barrier pouches occupy less space, providing better storage-volume efficiency and thus leading to reduced transportation costs.
