What kind of pouches are called “Side Gusset Pouches”?
Side gusset pouches are named for the gusset, or fold, on either side of the bag. The gussets expand when the package is filled with product, and the weight of the product usually holds the bag upright.
The format of side gusset pouches is a pouch with two side gussets and a bottom sealing. One side of the pouch remains open allowing for easy filling and sealing. The products get extra strength with the help of a bottom sealing. The central seal allows the pouch to stand by itself and provide the bottom seal with more strength.
Side gusset pouches are typically closed by rolling up or folded over the top and then using a label or tin tie after sealing; an integrated zipper is not an option here.
Traditionally used for coffee and tea, side-gusset pouches are going popular in the food, snack and baked food industries.
What features do Side Gusset Pouches have?
o A traditional style of flexible packaging, the side gusset pouch is cost-efficient and convenient to use, meaning most retail packaging in larger weights is of this variety. They are chosen due to their ease of use and less space occupying factor.
o The side-gusset feature allows your package to be displayed vertically or horizontally, giving retailers more options for shelf display.
o The straight lines give it a characteristic minimalistic look, and the bag won’t stand up well but will have a solid feel when you hold it.
* Quad Sealed Side Gusset Pouch
The quad seal side gusset pouch is of a similar style to the side gusset pouch. The main difference is that, as the name indicates these pouches are sealed on the four corners, rather than the back. This gives the packaging more of a square look, and makes it possible to integrate a zipper. Quad sealed side gusset pouches offer four crisp, clean panels for labels and graphic placement and an overall strong shelf presence.
What kind of products are Side Gusset Pouches suitable for packaging?
o Solid foods (coffee, loose-leaf tea, cocoa, cookies, nuts, snack mixes, etc.)
o Baked food
o Powder mixes
o Pet food
o Various other applications
