A side gusset pouch with a center seal “at the back”, also known as gusset bags, are a traditional type of packaging primarily used for products such as coffee and tea. This type of packaging has side folds, which make the bag voluminous, with back and bottom seams. When filled with products, these pouches become stable.
FEATURES OF GUSSET BAGS
Gusset bags are ideal for packing and storing hygroscopic products (such as coffee), which require maximum protection against dirt, odors, moisture, and ultraviolet radiation.
A pouch with a central seam is light, versatile, and easy to use.
Side folds (pleats) add additional volume to gusset bags when filled.
Gusset bags can be used as primary packaging. For example, for transporting large volumes of products for further packing into smaller containers.
FORMATION OF TWO-SIDED BAGS
This can be achieved by placing the central seam on the side, forming a two-sided bag.
Gusset bags are resistant to mechanical damage.
Compared to glass and plastic containers, flexible packaging is more economically advantageous.
MATERIALS FOR MAKING GUSSET BAGS
Depending on the type of product you are ordering packaging for, our managers will suggest the necessary material that best meets the task of preserving the product. Such material is produced by laminating (bonding) two or three layers.
WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF MATERIALS:
- TWO-LAYER MATERIALS (consist of a combination of polyethylene and polypropylene or kraft paper)
- THREE-LAYER MATERIALS (consist of a combination of polyethylene and polypropylene on a metalized layer)
GUSSET BAGS ARE USED FOR PACKAGING SUCH GOODS AS:
OPTIONS FOR THE GUSSET PACKAGE:
- Degassing valve (for packing freshly roasted coffee)
- Tear notch for easy opening of the package
PRINTED GUSSET BAGS
There are several differences in branding pouches with a center seam compared to doypacks or stabilo pouches. The front of the bag is the most presentable part, where it is best to place the product name and brand. The back, separated by the seam, and the sides of the bag can contain technical information such as composition, manufacturer, etc.
GUSSET bags can be ordered in the colors of your brand with a custom design, as well as in the most standard colors for further placement of stickers or embossing.
