Flow Wrap – HFFS
Flow Wrap - HFFS
Flow Wrapping, or Horizontal Form-Fill and Seal (HFFS) is the process of making a horizontal bag from a single roll of film. Heat is applied to the bottom and ends of the film to form a sealed, flexible package already filled with products. Flow wrap packaging is used for a variety of products.
Recent developments allow the integration of a breathable strip into the pack, so allowing it to be used for ETO sterilization.
The process can be faster than FFS but offers less protection.
