Spout and Closure
Spout and closure forms the filling, seal and re-close property for the spout bags.
The key point is to well weld the spout onto the doypack, with sufficient seal, no leakage and also no damage between spout and doypack, and we will introduce more knowledge regarding spout welding in future posts.
Without inner sealing property, The aluminum foil will have to be laminated with other substrate film to realize all the functions needed for an integrated package, with most common structures as below, with each later one tops over the previous one in quality and price.
- PET/AL/LDPE, limited to packages with volume lower than 200ml
- PET/AL/PA/LDPE, most common used structure, with the premium quality.
Of course, The inner LDPE film can be replaced by Retort CPP Film if the customer need to sterize his product in retort equipment.
Aluminum foil is considered with the best barrier performange against WVTR (shor for water vapor transmission rate) and OTR (Oxygen transmission rate). In below data talbe, it shows the values for OTR and WVTR are both 0, which are actually not the reality, as there are unevitable some pinholes on the aluminum foil.
So, when the aluminum foil is laminated with other substrate films, the final foil laminate is considered as great barrier foil for many products, like coffee, juice, sauce, tomato ketchup, milk powder etc.
