Features & Benefits

The three side seal pouch is a simple, entry level pouch. A low-cost packaging option that provides low gauge, single layer options down to 40 microns. Fully customisable in size and dimensions, this adaptable pouch is suitable for various product types including liquids, dry goods and frozen free flow products. Using pouches to replace other packaging formats such as tin cans provides an opportunity to reduce packaging material by up to 85%. Snell Flexibles is a partner in the Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme which means that pouches are now fully recyclable in New Zealand and Australia.

The three side seal pouch is excellent for multiple use and refill applications. It displays well horizontally so is well-suited for freezer items. The three side seal pouch is re-sealable/reclosable using a wide range of ziplock and velcro closures for convenience and consumer appeal. Suitable for large volume/bulk products up to 10kg

Three side seal pouches offer large real estate with printable front and back faces. At Snell Flexibles, we deliver crisp photographic quality imagery through gravure printing.

Three side seal pouches can be constructed using multiple film/laminate types for customised barrier protection.

Smart Packaging Solutions

One of the original flexible packaging constructions, the three side seal pouch continues to be used as an efficient entry level pack option. This pouch can be filled and sealed from the bottom so that the manufacturer’s seal is presented to the customer — making the customer experience of your brand clean and consistent. New technology now has allowed the addition of modern features including zips, laser scoring and easy open options.
