Plastic Pouch: The Definitive FAQ Guide
What are plastic pouches?
Plastic pouches are containers that are used for storing different kinds of substances and products, including those in solid, liquid and powder form.
A plastic pouch can be used to package food products, industrial products, agricultural products, and medical products.
A plastic pouch is made of thin and flexible plastic film.
Tedpack is a distinguished manufacturer of plastic pouches suitable for usage across a wide range of industries.
What are the different types of plastic pouches?
Plastic pouches are used by businesses in different industries and so they are made from different materials suitable for different product needs.
The commonest of these are:
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Plastic Pouches
High Density Polyethylene plastic pouches are lightweight, temperature and water resistant.
HDPE pouches also possess high tensile strength which means these pouches are resistant to breaking under tension.
HDPE Plastic Pouches
HDPE satisfies the FDA and USDA food handling guidelines and that makes it suitable for storage of food products.
It is commonly used by grocery and convenience stores and restaurants.
Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) Plastic Pouches
Plastic pouches made from LDPE are also good for the storage of food.
A LDPE plastic pouch is a common preference among restaurateurs because of its clear and transparent nature which gives room for easy identification of its contents.
LDPE Plastic Pouches
LDPE plastic pouches have low melting point.
Just like HDPE, LDPE satisfies the FDA and USDA food handling guidelines and are therefore top choices for packaging and storing food products.
LDPE bags are commonly used for the storage of bulk food items such as vegetables and fresh fruits.
Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Plastic Pouches
On the first look, LLDPE plastic pouches appear to be the same as LDPE plastic pouches.
However, on a closer look, would discover that there are differences between plastic pouches.
The primary difference is that an LLDPE plastic pouch has a thinner gauge than the LDPE plastic pouch.
LLDPE Plastic Pouches
This does not affect the quality of the LLDPE plastic pouch since it is still as strong as its LDPE counterpart.
If you are looking to save money while still purchasing a pouch of good quality, you should consider this pouch.
LLDPE pouches are also relatively clear and are suitable as food storage bags.
These bags can also be used for storage of food in freezers and refrigerators.
Polypropylene (PP) plastic pouches
PP plastic pouches have a high melting point which makes them good for heat-resealing.
These plastic pouches have better chemical strength than other plastic pouches.
They are also not breathable.
This quality makes them more suitable for preserving products without having recourse to refrigeration for a longer period than other types of plastic pouches.
PP plastic pouches also provide better visibility because they are clearer than both LDPE and LLDPE plastic pouches.
PP Plastic Pouches
They are also approved by USDA and FDA for food handling.
They are commonly used for storing food items such as herbs, nuts and candies.
Are Plastic Pouches Porous?
An item is said to be porous if it has several small holes through which air or liquid can slowly pass through.
Whether or not a plastic pouch is porous depends on the type of plastic it is.
For instance, High Density Polyethylene plastic pouches and Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Plastic pouches are non-porous while a Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) pouch is porous.
What product the pouch will be used to store will play a role in determining whether you choose a porous or non-porous pouch.
Are Plastic Pouches Recyclable?
Plastic pouches are made of different types of materials such as polyethylene, aluminium foil, polyester, among others.
Other materials such as zippers and caps are often features of plastic pouches.
It is possible to recycle some of these materials independently.
However, once they are all combined together to make the pouch, separation for independent recycling becomes a difficulty and a lot of recycling programs do not take pouches that are made from numerous materials.
Thus, recycling plastic pouches may generally pose a difficulty.
The good news is that there are some special recycling programs for these mixed-material pouches and so there is still a possibility of recycling.
So, it is safe to say that plastic pouches are recyclable.

How do I choose the right plastic pouch?
You have to put different relevant factors into consideration when trying to select the perfect pouch for your product.
Thus, before you reach a conclusion as to whether to use a stand up pouch or a 3-side seal pouch, you should:
Consider the needs of your product
Whatever plastic pouch you select has to meet your product’s requirements.
If your business deals with products that are likely to decompose when exposed to particular conditions, your choice of the plastic pouch should be one that relatively reduces exposure to such conditions.
For instance, a plastic pouch that will be used to store roasted coffee beans needs to have a de-gassing value to enable the release of carbon dioxide without exposing the beans to oxygen.
Thus, a business that offers roasted coffee beans for sale should prioritize the presence of de-gassing valve when choosing a plastic pouch for packaging its product.
It is therefore important that you carry out detailed research into the possible needs of your product before settling for a particular type of pouch.
Consider the needs of your business
You have to also consider the needs of your business when choosing plastic pouches.
The primary needs to consider under this heading includes profit margins, shipping schedule, fixed production quota, among others.
Consider the size of your product
The size and quantity of the product you want to package will affect the size and type of plastic pouch you buy.
Buying plastic pouches of a particular size may be cost-effective, but it may not be good for your business in the long run.
A useful tip in this instance is to get plastic pouches in different sizes so you can cater to the quantity needs of different customers.
Consider the usability of the pouch
Your product package is only effective when it meets the need of your products, the retailers and the end users.
Thus, it is important to consider how your customers would want to treat the plastic pouch after the first use.
For instance, is the product such that customers will not exhaust its content after opening it the first time?
Will customers usually want to reseal the pouch after one serving?
Will resealing affect the quality of the product?
You need to consider the dynamics of your product and the likely ways the customers will treat it when making a choice of plastic pouch.
While there are different designs and combinations of plastic pouches, you need to know the one which perfectly suits the need of your products and will appeal to the end-users before making a choice.
The questions listed above are useful in making this decision.
What are the sizes of plastic pouches?
When describing the size and dimensions of a plastic pouch, it is usually described as Width x Length x Thickness.
The width and length are measured in “inches” while the thickness is the gauge.
The width of the pouch refers to the side of it that opens.
Usually, but not in all cases, the width is the side of the pouch that opens.
The dimension of the width always comes before the length while the thickness of the pouch comes last.
As indicated above, the thickness is often expressed in gauge.
As a rule of thumb, 100 gauge is equivalent to 1/1000 of an inch.
A plastic pouch with 120 gauge is a light duty and is a good choice for protective covering.
A plastic pouch with 250 gauge is medium duty and should be the preferred choice for holding light substances.
When strength is a requirement, a plastic pouch with a 500 gauge is the ideal choice.
What are the different plastic pouch packaging styles?
There are different packaging styles for a plastic pouch.
The most popular ones include:
- Stand up pouches
- Fin seal pouches
- 3-side seal pouches
- Shaped pouches
What are Stand Up Pouches?
These pouches are the most popular pouches in the market.
The width of the face and back of these pouches coupled with their bottom gusset allows them easily to stand on store shelves and also provides enough room for printing or adding a label.
A Stand Up Pouch
Stand up pouches come with different features such as tear notches, gas valves, and ziplocks.
They are also suitable for storing a wide range of food products including snacks, cereal, and spices.
These pouches are also good for pet food packing.
Stand up pouches have different bottom gussets and the choice depends on the volume and weight of the product to be packed.
Products less than 1 pound and as heavy as 10 pounds can easily be packaged in stand up pouches.
These pouches are also recyclable and are landfill-friendly.
What are Fin Seal Pouches?
Fin seal pouches are also known as flow wrapping and horizontal pouches.
They are used to loosely contain items in a tamper-resistant material and are popularly used for handling small food products.
Fin Seal Pouch
It is possible to fill fin seal pouches with nitrogen gas to make the pouches look full, although the pouch only contains small quantity of the products.
It is a suitable choice for businesses into candies, frozen dumplings, and instant noodles production.
What are 3-Side Seal Pouches?
As the name implies, 3-side seal pouches are sealed at three sides and only one side is kept open.
It is a commonly used pouch and is suitable for holding different kinds of items including grains and solid products.
The 3-side seal pouch can also be manufactured with a narrow opening or a very wide opening depending on the choice of the customer.
In essence, it can be designed to meet the specific needs of the customer’s product.
This makes it a preferred choice for customers in different industries including pharmaceuticals, beverages and food industries.
What are Shaped Pouches?
The shaped pouches do not come in the same shapes as the normal pouches hence the name “shaped pouches”.
These pouches are custom-made to suit the needs of your brand.
As a customer, you get to determine all the proportions, dimensions, shape, sizes and all other special features the pouch will have.
You also get to make your choice of color from a range of 10 printing colors and decide the handles and zipper you want.
The materials used are also 100% approved by the FDA and can be used for holding both liquids and solids.
Are all plastic pouches child resistant?
