Stand-up pouches can be sealed at a tabletop sealer. If however they are thick or have a Kraft or Aluminum layer, a more specialized sealer is required with a wide sealing area and both jaws heated.
They are also suitable for shelf life extention techniques such as pasteurization or MAP when they have the proper gas barrier or boilable properties.
It is worth mentioning here that, in case of high production speeds, automatic packing machines can, either use premade pouches or to form them at spot using the suitable film reel (adding a zipper or a valve if necessary). Kapelis Packaging offers both machine types.
Doypack is considered today as one of the most beautifull and prestigious packaging types.
