EZ-Stand Vertical Form

Polymer Packaging introduces EZ-Stand, a new technology to produce stand-up pouches on existing vertical form/fill/seal machines.

With EZ-Stand, you can produce a bottom-gusset stand-up pouch on your existing equipment with only minor modifications to the sealing jaws. We pre-apply the bottom gusset to your printed film web to form a conventional style stand-up pouch on your existing equipment.

Today’s shoppers prefer flexible, stand-up pouches to traditional, rigid packaging. As a leading supplier of flexible packaging solutions, Polymer Packaging offers numerous stand-up pouch options including shaped pouches, spouted pouches, liquid pouches, box pouches, re-closable pouches and many more.
