There are recyclable packaging materials for the confectionery industry that are quick and easy to process! ROVEMA has successfully tested this polyolefin packaging material for the production of attractive Doypack-like stand-up pouches (RoPack). Thanks to the high seal strength and the integrated fat, oil and water vapour barrier, even sensitive unwrapped confectionery products such as gummy bears remain aromatic and fresh for a long time.
With a recyclable zip as a reclosure option, this application becomes a sustainable solution that can be disposed within the polyolefin recycling cycle.
This packaging material is particularly easy to process and allows additional sophisticated bag options, e.g. with sealed bottom edges.
In an application test, 150 g of Dragees were packed with a continuously operating BVC Flexible Vertical Form, Fill and Seal machine, with an output rate of up to 110 bags/minute. The repeat length was 115 mm.
