Flexible packaging firm ConservaCube will introduce its cube-shaped standup pouches, ConservaCube and FlexiPAIL, at Pack Expo Las Vegas in September.
Having a zipper closure option, the two packages are said to maximize pallet loads, saving freight and warehousing costs.
With built-in carry handles and cubic palletization, they aim to substitute bags, pouches and bag-in-box packages used for packaging.
ConservaCube claims to replace the traditional stand up and side gusset pouches, while the FlexiPAIL is an alternative to rigid pails.
Both the packs are capable of reducing up-front packaging costs and restocking.
ConservaCube and FlexiPAIL stand up in their cubic shape after filling, resulting in multiple layers per pellet and doing away with secondary support for stacking. These features help the packs to display better load efficiencies.
The packs could be used in retail and foodservice sectors, along with other segments such as pet, lawn and garden, household and chemical.
Applicable for dry, free-flowing products with finished packaging weights up to 25kg, ConservaCube and FlexiPAIL are available in sizes from 15cm cubes to cuboids with dimension 30.5 by 33 by 45 cm.
The flexible packages, drawn from a single substrate, can be recycled. The polyethylene film used for such packaging is 4 to 5mm in thickness. Any pattern or hue could be supplied on the surfaces by means of flexographic or gravure printing.
