What is Flow Wrapping?

Flow wrapping which can also be known as fin seal wrapping and horizontal bagging, is the process of wrapping a product in a clear or printed polypropylene film.

The end result is a flexible package with a crimped top and bottom seal. To put it simply whenever you open a bag of crisps and wonder how they have stayed fresh and kept their crunch, this is down to flow wrapping.

Flow Wrapping Materials

Different packaging materials are used depending on the product. To create a unique design which matches your specific branding, up to 10 colours can be used on the printed polypropylene film; food grade clear films can also be used. Other materials are also available such as; cellulose film and heat, sealable lacquered materials and plastics laminated to paper film or foil.

Examples of Flow Wrapping uses

All kinds of food products can be flow wrapped; non-food products include such things as leaflets, booklets, scratch cards, electrical and computer hardware.
