Powdered products and materials are growing increasingly popular on the global market. Producing a successful product requires versatility and performance from design through product completion and delivery. ELIS is pleased to offer solutions for virtually any powdered product. Our selection of flexible packaging options for powders includes:

  • Pouches. Pouches come in a broad array of sizes, with multiple layers of packaging material crafted into upright, pillowed, and resealable designs. Pouches are designed for durability to protect contents from impact, pressure, and environmental conditions during storage and transport.
  • Sachets. We offer unique and stylish sachets in a multitude of sizes and volumes, with different packaging material and closure options. Sachets offer a quick, easy-to-use packaging option for individually packaged items like tea bags.
  • Packets. Powder packets are quick and convenient, providing an ideal packaging option for single-serving products. Packets are commonly used to hold single-serve powders like salt, pepper, and sugar.
  • Stick packs. A narrower version of easy-to-use packets, stick packs can be used for single-serving and sample-size product dispensing. The slim design makes it a popular option for portable drink mixes, sugar, and nutritional supplements.
  • Standup bags. As the go-to for shelf visibility, standup bags are available in a host of shapes and sizes, including gusseted and pillow bags. Not only do standup bags look great on the shelf, but they also save storage space and protect products during shipping.

Powder Packaging Capabilities

When choosing between powder packaging companies, it is important to understand the particular needs of your product. Using the wrong equipment or packaging option can result in lost time, inappropriate packaging, and poor product quality. Below are the three most important considerations when choosing your packaging partner.

  • Free-flow or non-free-flow. Free-flow products like granulated sugar and salt will flow naturally with gravity, while non-free-flow products like milk powder tend to stick together and must be handled with more care. The consistency of the product and its ability to flow will determine the type of filling system necessary to ensure efficient and accurate product packaging.
  • Product dust. Airborne dust from lightweight powders like flour and baking powder can pose a risk for mechanical components. Powder packaging equipment must be protected from airborne particles when packaging particularly dusty products.
  • Bulk density. The bulk density of the product will affect the amount of compaction and the flow of the powder through the system. It will also directly impact pouch size and design and determine the filler equipment and processing speed necessary for efficient production.
