Polymer Packaging introduces a new low-cost microbial control flexible packaging film converted into bags, sheeting, rolls and pouches. Our microbial control film inhibits the growth of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and molds. Initial testing has shown that BacStop inhibits growth of bacteria by 99.9%.
What is the Shelf Life of BacStop?
BacStop is easily blended into the film so it does not wear off or leach out. We have conducted shelf-life testing with various food/drink products that does not show any microbial growth for 1-2 years.
Safe and Effective
BacStop uses safe and effective copper sulfate as the active microbial control ingredient. It has excellent dispersion properties due to its patented electrostat- ic carrier technology. BacStop is ideal for food processors and does not have ANY adverse effects on the product.
BacStop is tested to ISO 22196:2011 standards against common organism such as E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Staphylococcus Intermedium, Streptococ- cus Mutans and Staphylococcus Aureus. Our independently tested laboratory results are available on request. Contact Polymer Packaging for BacStop com- patibility testing with your specific product.

CO-POLYMER-X IS A LOWER COST, HIGH-QUALITY REPLACEMENT TO EXISTING FILM
Massillon, OH—Co-Polymer-X from Polymer Packaging is a lower cost, high-quality replacement to standard film used in any application where plain, unprinted film is being used.
Co-Polymer-X is a stronger but thinner, lightweight film alternative to conventional film, making it ideal for food and industrial packaging applications. It increases strength yet saves money and reduces plastic consumption. Applications include poly bags, gaylord liners, bin and case liners, dust covers, pallet shrouds, box liners, furniture covers and shrink film.
Manufactured in SQF-approved facilities, Co-Polymer-X is produced with premium resins using advanced multi-layered extrusion technology. It also is available in industrial grades.
Co-Polymer-X is environmentally friendly and delivers source reduction up to 50% over existing films. It is available in thickness range of .0003 to 10 mil and size range from 14-125 inches wide.
“Polymer Packaging offers free lab testing that allows the company to reverse engineer your existing film to determine what your current film is and why it works,” said Larry L. Lanham, CEO. “With this information, we are able to design a less expensive but stronger Co-Polymer-X alternative and give you a side-by-side graphical specification comparison.
“Combined with our 100% guaranteed trial order, all guesswork is eliminated in utilizing this superior product,” Lanham said. “The evaluation and trial process from start to finish can be accomplished in two weeks or less with typical full orders also supplies in two weeks or less.”

Advantages of Flexible, Stand-Up Pouches Over Traditional Packaging Options
Massillon, OH—Many of today’s shoppers prefer flexible, stand-up pouches over traditional, rigid packaging. Consumers have driven demand for stand-up pouches exponentially over the past decade, whether for snack foods, beverages, baby food or industrial oils and lubricants.
Polymer packaging is at the forefront of converting rigid packaging into flexible stand-up packaging in a variety of configurations. As a leading supplier of flexible packaging solutions for the consumer products industry, Polymer Packaging offers numerous stand-up pouch options in all shapes and sizes, to suit any barrier requirement and with ancillary items such as spouts, rails and closures.
As proven by consumer demand, stand-up packages are highly preferred because they fit today’s convenient lifestyle. Consumers find that stand-up pouches dispense product more easily. Pillow packs don’t have the stand-up store convenience of a stand-up pouch, and they don’t spill.
"Marketers prefer stand-up packages because they improve visibility and differentiate products from the competition," said Larry L. Lanham, CEO. "Packaging which lays flat on shelf doesn’t have the ability to stand out like stand-up packaging."
Retailers appreciate that stand-up flexible packaging leaves a smaller carbon footprint and reduces overall shipping and logistics cost over rigid packaging.
From a marketing perspective, the stand-up pouch is a dream come true, offering brands the ability to differentiate through seemingly infinite printability options and the ability to offer many different and convenient re-sealable closures. Furthermore, the application of specially designed laminates means that pouches can offer retort properties, making it a real alternative to metal and plastic rigid enclosures.
Consumers prefer standup pouches for the following reasons:
Appeals to millennials
Easier to open than glass jar or pillow bag
Safer to open than can or glass jar
Higher perceived value
Product visibility (clear windows)
Added functionality of zipper or pour spout
Food processors prefer stand-up pouches for the following reasons:
Reduced transportation costs
Takes up less space in warehouses
Greater cubic fill vs. pillow bag
Lighter weight for e-commerce
Fewer trucks on the road (7 to 1 vs. rigid PET)
More and more, consumer and commercial goods manufacturers are shifting focus away from more traditional, rigid packaging options. Stand-up pouches continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in packaging with new functionality being developed at a very rapid pace.
Additionally, retort pouches can be manufactured in numerous sizes and shapes. Selection of the correct packaging material provides superb product protection, optimal chemical resistance, oxygen barrier, easy open and reclose, excellent consumer storage, the ability to microwave and many more features.
At Polymer Packaging, our extensive experience in the production of multi-layer barrier laminates for food products, coupled with demand from the market, means that our pouch products are often used as modified atmosphere packaging. A standup pouch can drastically increase shelf life and reduce food waste.
PPI offers numerous Stand-Up pouch options for customers including:
