POLYSTAR was the first converter in North America, to offer a reverse printed and laminated structure that is capable of being sealed to a Polyethylene sealant layer. This structure is based on a high clarity polyolefin film. That same structure supported the making of side gusseted bags for VFFS lines. This began a transition from conventional “chest” type freezers in stores to showcasing the product standing up on shelves.
Our complete line of packaging products for frozen application offer high line speeds and efficiencies.
In conclusion, if you are looking for high graphics reproduction and the ability to maximize up-time on your packaging equipment, we can help you.

Powder products are difficult to package due to the presence of contaminants in the seal area. Because of the contaminants, the overall shelf life of your product could be lower than what is anticipated based on the barriers offered by the film structure.
With its business partners, POLYSTAR has formulated different grades of polyethylene sealant layers, available in clear, white or double white that offers good line speed as well as good seals. The sealant layers are formulated in such a way that you will get very good seals around contaminants as well as a wide window of operation.
