The flow wrap or fin-seal package offers a highly efficient method for packaging a wide variety of products. As economic demands change, the necessity to increase the flow wrap output rate grows. There are many variables that go into optimizing the material and machinery used in this type of application, each with their advantages and disadvantages.
This paper will highlight five of the major considerations for designing and selecting the ideal flow wrap material for your application. It will then address the options for evaluating and testing the quality and integrity of the finished flow wrap package.
- Coefficient of Friction
- Seal Initiation Temperature
- Integrity Testing
