Pasted Open Mouth Bags
Open mouth bags are closed on one side of the tube, either by sewing or by glueing. The high quality materials and types of construction offered provide a longer shelf life for your products. Re-opening devices can be applied, so that the product remains protected for a longer period by the end user. A choice of bleached or unbleached paper is available, with grammage ranging from 60gsm to 130gsm. Design facilities and printing with up to 10 colours can be provided, including process printing. Coatings can also be optionally applied to give a gloss finish or improve frictional characteristics. For special protection via a barrier, open mouth bags are available with PE-Inliner.
