A Mini Guide to the Types of Flexible Packaging Products You Can Use

When it comes to product packaging, first impressions count. Good packaging not only keeps products safe and fresh but also attracts consumers and elevates brand value.

Modern businesses have a wide range of packaging options to choose from. Depending on your needs, you can select rigid or flexible packaging, which comes in different sizes, shapes, and forms.

Today more than ever, flexible or non-rigid packaging is emerging as the top choice of brand owners worldwide mainly due to their convenient shape, ease of handling, re-sealable features, and low impact on the environment.

Plus, there’s practically no product that can’t benefit from the use of flexible packaging. Whether your product is liquid, in powder form, or grain, whether it’s chemically sensitive or one that requires special handling, we have flexible packaging for you.

Flexible packaging is made from materials that yield easily, like polyethylene, polyester, and polypropylene. That’s what makes them flexible and ideal for storing any product and maintaining their freshness even during transit. Available as films, pouches, bubble wraps, paper bags, etc., these flexible packaging products are sturdy yet cost-effective and can be customised according to your needs.

In this short guide, we’ll shed some light on the different types of flexible packaging that you can use.


Flexible Packaging Products

These include packaging pouches/lamination pouches like vacuum pouch, zip lock pouch, gusset pouch, stand up pouch, and flexible packaging films/lamination film available in various varieties.


Vacuum Pouches

One of the best flexible packaging alternatives, vacuum pouches stand upright on shelves and have excellent display capability. These high barrier pouches help create oxygen and moisture barriers and are perfect for packing ready-to-eat, processed, and semi-processed food. Available in various sizes, vacuum pouches keep food fresh for long.


Nitrogen Flush Pouches

These pouches contain nitrogen gas that can preserve food and keep it fresh for long. Specifically designed to protect delicate food items, nitrogen flush pouches provide a high-quality barrier against the external environment and increase the shelf life of products packed. Besides, nitrogen does not react with food the way oxygen does, further making these pouches a customer favourite.


Stand Up / Zip Lock Pouch

A stand-up pouch or a zip lock pouch are re-sealable and perfect for storing food and pharmaceutical products. These pouches have air-tight closure, are easy to pack, and are excellent for brand advertisement.


Transparent pouch

High-quality transparent pouches are re-sealable and available in various sizes and specifications. These pouches are sturdy, waterproof, and can be customised according to your needs.


Liquid Pouch

Liquid pouches are available as milk pouches, water pouches, and liquor pouches and come in various colours, shapes and sizes. These pouches are high quality, durable, and reliable, perfect for keeping liquid intact.


Shrink Film

The lightweight and highly durable shrink films are ideal for wrapping PET bottles and making them waterproof, weatherproof and tamper-proof.


Stretch Cling Film

Stretch cling films are versatile and highly stretchable and are used for industrial as well as commercial purposes. Designed to cling tightly with products, stretch cling films provide a secure overlap for product protection.


Mulch Film

Available as agricultural mulch film and biodegradable mulch film, these films are used for high crop yields. They cover the soil to modify soil temperature and ensure good crop production.


Multilayer Cross Laminated Film

Used for various purposes like protecting grains, covering wagons, trucks, tents, covering roads, these laminated films are UV stabilised and designed to withstand harsh climatic conditions.


Oil Films

Our oil films are highly durable, smooth textured, puncture-resistant, and available in various sizes. These re-sealable pouches are reasonably priced and ideal for storing oil.


Packaging Liners

We have an extensive range of packaging liners, from FIBC liners to industrial liners, pond liners, and gas barrier liners. FIBC liners are used as protective lining inside FIBC bulk bag containers, while industrial liners are used for various protective measures in mining oil and gas industries. Pond liners are widely used in garden ponds and artificial ponds. Gas barrier liners help to block the passage of gas and reduce vaporisation.


Bio-Degradable Films

used to preserve and protect food for a longer time, biodegradable films are in high demand as they are eco-friendly. These are a healthy alternative to plastics and are a widely preferred food packaging solution across the food industry.


Recyclable Flexible Packaging Film

These are available in various options like recyclable flexible packaging products, recyclable oil pouches, recyclable flexible packaging pouches (PP+PE lamination film) and recyclable flexible packaging pouches (PE+PE lamination film)


Courier Bags

These are available in two variants: E-commerce Courier bags and security bags. E-commerce courier bags are tear and weather-resistant. Once sealed, they cannot be opened without tearing. This allows you to use them to move important documents and consignments safely. On the other hand, security bags are high-security, tamper-proof bags and envelopes designed to leave irreversible proof of tampering.


As you can see, the flexible packaging options are as varied as the applications. So, no matter what your packaging needs are, we at Solos Polymers have the right solution for you.
