Total Lumicene Supertough®, the next step forward for Stand-Up Pouches

Total, Windmöller & Hölscher and Coveris collaborated along the value chain from resin to final product to create a perfect stand-up pouch, which was showcased at K 2016.

This event, held in late October in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the world’s largest trade show for the international plastics and rubber industry.

The increase in the number of uses for stand-up pouches as well as the overall increase in demand for them explains the importance of this packaging solution to brand owners and consumers. Manufacturers strive to find the best productivity and performance of the stand-up pouch, and Total Lumicene Supertough® provides the ideal solution.

Total Lumicene Supertough®, a specially designed metallocene polyethylene resin, is the latest evolution in product development for film extrusion. It generates added value with its superior mechanical properties, downgauging potential, excellent bubble stability and peak output. These characteristics have encouraged numerous customers and brand owners to adopt the Lumicene Supertough® solution for stand-up pouches as a new flexible packaging option.

Total, Windmöller & Hölscher and Coveris are leaders in their respective fields providing, together, the perfect solution with each collaborator dedicated to delivering their part: the right formula for 25% downgauging potential with Total’s new Lumicene Supertough® grade; the optimal machine setup for highest output with Windmöller & Hölscher’s machinery and software; and, for this project, Coveris’ lamination and pouch making expertise.
