Packaging for pet foods must provide protection specific to the type of food being packaged. High fat dog foods require grease resistance, for example. Some packages are designed in a stand-up pouch format and require the stiffness needed to maintain the shape of the package. High heat seal strength and toughness are critically important for larger size packages.
Materials frequently selected for use in pet food packaging include:
- Polyethylene resins such as ATTANE™ ULDPE resins, DOWLEX™ polyethylene resins, ELITE™ enhanced polyethylene resins, and DOW™ LDPE resins
