The new stand up pouch for SONAX window cleaning solution can be recognised from afar thanks to its round form. Packaging specialist Bischof + Klein has developed unmistakable, flexible packaging in co-operation with its customer, SONAX, and packaging agency Berndt + Partner.
It is similar to the SONAX canister, which is also round, but offers the typical advantages of a stand up pouch: it saves space and material, and has little impact on disposal. One additional advantage in its handling is the small spout, which enables the solution to be poured precisely into even small openings without spluttering. The pouch simply contracts on pouring out. Since air does not have to be routed into the packaging at the same time to equalise the vacuum, the pouches' spout can be designed considerably smaller.
The stand up pouch for SONAX window cleaning solution is printed with seven colours and is equipped with a subdivided three-finger handle for easy carrying and pouring. It is stable and very well received at the point of sale.
With individual contours and formats between 50 ml and 10 litres, the stand up pouches from B+K offer high innovation potential. Another example is the stand up pouch in the form of a "Guglhupf" cake which Bischof + Klein has developed in close co-operation with a customer and a machine manufacturer. Thanks to the special material combination, the bag can be heated in a water bath or microwave oven along with its contents. The liquid frosting can then be distributed over the cake using the spout.
Bischof + Klein recommends the stand up pouch as an inexpensive and sustainable alternative to hard packaging with significant advantages, particularly as regards storage and transportation. Depending on customer requirements, various film combinations are used. Customers can choose from special shapes with various carrying handles, special pouch contours, resealable closures (zippers) or spouts.
The substrate films can be printed with up to ten colours via reverse or frontal printing using the flexographic and the gravure printing methods. The stand up pouch can be designed for sterilisation applications if required. It is suitable as packaging for detergents and cleaning materials, liquid soaps, foodstuffs, window cleaning solutions, lubricating oils, technical fluids or highly concentrated disinfectants.
