The packaging of fatty powders requires high barrier properties and an extraordinary sealed seam quality. Up to now, these sensitive products have preferably been packaged aroma-tight with classic PET/aluminum composite packaging materials.
The tested polyethylene packaging material with 85% BIO-PE allows packaging under protective gassing and offers a fat, oil and oxygen barrier. The polyolefin composite can be recycled and the sealing medium consists of 85% renewable resources.
ROVEMA achieved an output of up to 60 pillow bags per minute in application tests with a continuously operating Vertical Form, Fill and Seal machine BVC 260, a filling quantity of 500 g and a repeat length of 285 mm.
