A measurement of the ability of a pouch to resist rupturing when pressure is applied to it.
A test where pouches are exposed to internal pressure until the point of bursting to verify that seals are fused together on the molecular level.
The bottom part of a fitment designed for adhesion with the flexible packaging material of a spouted pouch.
Doyen pouch (also known as a Doypack)
See “Doyen seal”.
A type of U-shaped, bottom-gusset seal commonly found on stand-up pouches. A Doyen seal is typically used for liquids or lightweight products. Stand-up pouches with Doyen seals are typically referred to as Doyen pouches or Doypacks. Learn more about stand-up pouches here.

Fill and seal machine
Also known as “fill/seal,” a machine that fills and seals premade pouches.
A method of using lasers to create tiny perforations that facilitate oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange, extending the shelf life of certain items or allowing packaging to release moisture. Laser perforations can penetrate either partially or fully through the flexible packaging structure, depending on the desired breathability of the film.
Laser score or laser scoring
A method of using lasers to create a score line or pattern in flexible packaging material (while leaving the barrier layer intact), allowing the consumer to easily tear open the premade pouch along the line of laser scoring. This is typically accompanied by a tear notch. Learn more about laser-scored pouches here.
A slider designed for powdered or granulated products that clears particles out of the track, allowing the package to reclose properly.
A manufacturer that creates formed premade pouches from flexible packaging material (as well as fitments/spouts if applicable).
Press-to-close zipper pouch
A pouch with a closure consisting of one or more projecting fins inserted into a mating channel. This closure creates a reliable seal when pressed together. Press-to-close zippers are one of the most common stand-up pouch closures. Learn more about zipper pouches here.
Puncture resistance testing
A test analyzing how much pressure is required to puncture a flexible packaging structure.
A flat-bottom stand-up pouch made with two vertical panels and two gussets joined from two vertical seals, all formed from the same web.
A closure with a sliding mechanism positioned along a track with flanged interlocking profiles that create a reliable seal when pressed together by the sliding mechanism. Learn more about slider pouches here.
