Skin Packaging is a type of carded packaging which uses heat sealing to vacuum form film over the product as efficiently as possible. Heat sealing is the central procedure of skin packaging because it can work with a wide variety of materials using easily automated processes.
This packaging technique has four components:
- The plastic film
- Heat seal coating
- Printing ink
After printing, the board is placed on a vacuum plate and product is placed on the board. At the beginning of the packaging cycle the film is heated and applied to the product and its backing. When the heated film comes into contact with the backing substrate, it forms an airtight seal around the product. Then, the platform containing the heated film is lowered over the product, a vacuum draws the film down to the substrate and around the product, which results in a neat and attractive look.
