STAND UP POUCHES: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR PACKAGERS?ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING TRENDS IN PACKAGING IS THE STAND-UP POUCH, WHICH HAS SEEN SIGNIFICANT GROWTH OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS IN A NUMBER OF KEY MARKETS AROUND THE WORLD.FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageDrinks manufacturers and packagers around the world are increasingly using stand-up pouches in their packaging for: Mineral waterNon-carbonated soft drinks MilkAROUND THE WORLDFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageNew uses are being found all the time, for example, cocktail mixes.From 0-300 million units in the last 4 yearsFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageWORLDWIDE DEMANDWorldwide demand for pouches is expected to rise 6.2% per year, reaching $37.3 billion in 2018.The largest growth is expected in China and developing nationsby 20186.2%$37.3bndemand rise per yearFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageWHY ARE STAND-UP POUCHES POPULAR?BETTER AESTHETICSUNIQUE FEATURES SPOUTS AND HANDLESENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITSFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageWHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR PACKAGERS AND DRINKS BRANDS?FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beveragePouch packaging weighs a great deal less than rigid packaging types, such as cans or bottles, using less material to hold equivalent volumes of liquid. The primary benefit of this is lower shipping cost, thanks to reduced weight per unit and the ability to fit more units in the same space.LOWER SHIPPING COSTSFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beveragePouches offer the ability to present the brand as environmentally responsible thanks to the reduced shipping weight.ENVIRONMENTALLYRESPONSIBLEFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageGreater opportunity to differentiate brands, as stand-up pouches can be tailored to unique sizes, styles and designsFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beveragePouches support very vivid colour printing to ensure products stand out on store shelvesFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageWILL YOUR CODING SOLUTION WORK WITH POUCHES?FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageCurrently, stand-up pouches may be made from flexible PVdC (polyvinylidene chloride) coated films, or EVOH (Ethylene vinyl alcohol), which is a cheaper solution.PVDC: POLYVINYLLIDENE CHLORIDE EVOH: ETHYLENE VINYL ALCOHOLFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageAs the market for pouches grow, ongoing improvements are expected to be made on the barrier film substrates. For example, at present carbonated beverages cannot be stored in pouches due to escaping gasses. Similarly, pouches cannot be used for certain products that are hot-filled, but with improvements in heat tolerance, this will no longer be a limitation.FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageA non-contact printer such as a Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) coder is the best solution for pouches, as it copes best with varying pack shapes and sizes whilst keeping up with your line speed.FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageIf your company packages a wide range of products, youd benefit from a coding solution that can code onto several different packaging materials without rubbing off during production or end use.FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageUsing the correct ink also plays an important part here in ensuring coding does not rub off. Linx Black PE Ink 1130 for Linx CIJ printers is recommended in this instance as an all-round plastic adherent ink, meeting Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21 which also makes it suitable for food packaging applications.CORRECT INKSFIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageAn alternative non-contact coding solution is laser technology which is able to code onto most plastics. In applications where running costs are particularly important, lasers can reduce these costs substantially as they use no consumables.FIND OUT MORE: www.linx.co.uk/beverageFIND OUT MORE: http://www.linxglobal.com/Reduced set up time can also help reduce downtime, particularly for users who need to switch between product runs at multiple times per day.FIND OUT MORE: http://www.linx.co.uk/beverage
