Produce flexible packaging pouches for the global market
Custom Engineered Laminations in packaging

While some flexible packaging manufacturers offer a standard “menu” of flexible packaging materials, at Yeawo, we engineer customized flexible packaging structures designed specifically for your products. 

We’ve specialized in flexible packaging for 9 years, and our expertise in polymer chemistry and flexible packaging engineering allows us to design optimal, cost-effective flexible packaging materials. We work with a vast range of films, foils, papers, and resins when engineering customized flexible packaging laminations.

A flexible packaging structure typically consists of multiple layers of materials laminated together, with each layer performing a crucial role in your packaging’s performance and presentation.

Each layer provides specific performance characteristics, such as:

  • Oxygen, moisture, or light resistance

  • Chemical resistance

  • Puncture resistance

  • Tear resistance

  • Rigidity

  • Glossy or matte appearance

  • Opacity or translucency

  • Heat sealability

  • Print receptivity

The example below shows the duties each layer performs within a basic five-layer extrusion laminated flexible packaging structure:

1. Exterior Layer

  • Provides dimensionally-stable print surface

  • Protects the ink

  • Protects the barrier layer

  • Plays a role in burst strength & tear resistance

  • Adds to overall pouch strength

2. Tie Layer

  • Provides another layer of protection for the barrier layer

  • Bonds the outside layer to the barrier layer

  • Hides the color of the barrier layer

3. Barrier layer

  • Provides chemical resistance

  • Prevents moisture, light, and oxygen transmission

4. Tie Layer

  • Bonds the barrier layer to the sealant layer film

  • Provides protection for the barrier layer

5. Sealant Layer

  • Allows the flexible packaging structure to be heat-sealable

  • Provides burst strength

  • Seals the product within

  • Protects the barrier layer

Based on your requirements (including regulatory, cost, and aesthetic requirements), packaging equipment, product formulation, projected life cycle, and distribution methods, we can custom-engineer and suggest optimal flexible packaging structures for each of your products.
