SMART HANDLE - foil packaging with advertising in handle bar
Novel packaging protects the environment and reduces costs
At the FachPack, Polyden introduces the "SMART HANDLE" to a broad audience for the first time. The "SMART HANDLE" is a novel film packaging with a continuous advertising space right down to the grip band, which also reduces costs and protects the environment. The SMART HANDLE is registered as a utility model and participates in the competition "Deutscher Verpackungspreis", which is awarded within the FachPack.
Target market hygiene and pet supplies
The "SMART HANDLE" is ideal for the hygiene industry (toilet paper, diapers, household towels), pet supplies (litter, hay, straw) and for all products with high filling volumes.
SMART HANDLE has advertising under its belt
The special feature of the SMART HANDLE is the continuous printability of the handle and its use as advertising space - a novelty and a decisive advantage at the POS.
This is made possible by a new design principle. Foil pouch and grip tape are part of the same flat film (see sketch 1 below) and can be printed throughout with a motif. This leads to a harmonious advertising motif of the packaged product, increases the advertising space and simplifies the printing.
The grip tape is not subsequently welded, but inserted by clever folding in the head fold of the bag (see sketch 2 below), and unfolds only when filling (see sketch 3 below) of the film bag.
Saving materials protects the environment and reduces costs
Thanks to the integrated grip band, the film thickness of the bag can be reduced while maintaining its load-bearing capacity. Material savings of up to 15% reduce costs for material, transport, storage and disposal and protect the environment.
Further cost savings result from the simplified printing and packaging without grip tape welding.
