How do I know what thickness to choose for my Kraft Stand-Up Pouches?

Choosing the right thickness for your Kraft stand-up pouches depends on the weight and type of product you’ll be using them for. Here’s a breakdown to help you decide:

  • Lighter Products (100-120 microns): Ideal for lightweight products like coffee beans, snacks, tea leaves, or powders. This thickness offers a good balance between flexibility and protection.
  • Medium-Weight Products (120-150 microns): Suitable for products with some weight or require more structure, like granola bars, dried fruits, or small candies. This thickness provides additional support and better puncture resistance.
  • Heavier Products (150-180 microns): Best for heavier or bulkier items like pet food, bath salts, or larger candy bags. This thickness offers maximum durability and can withstand significant weight and potential bumps during handling.

Here are some additional factors to consider:

  • Shelf Life: If your product requires extended shelf life due to oxygen or moisture sensitivity, opting for a thicker pouch (150-180 microns) might be beneficial.
  • Stackability: For products that will be stacked on shelves, a thicker pouch (150-180 microns) can provide added stability and prevent crushing.
  • Desired Feel: If you prefer a more rigid pouch for a premium look, consider a thicker option (150-180 microns).
  • Lower Shipping Costs: Thinner pouches (100-120 microns) can sometimes be a more cost-effective option for lighter products due to their reduced weight and potential for smaller shipping boxes. However, always prioritize product protection over minimal cost savings.
