Flexible bags for Liquids and Pastes: 200L to 1000L
BERNHARDT’s larger liquid pouches are designed for long term packing of sensitive liquid, paste and semi-paste products in medium to high volumes, constructed from materials chosen to meet specific requirements such as protection against vapor moisture, gas, UV or packing under vacuum or gas flushing. Spouts, caps and connections are available to suit a wide range of filling processes and end-user applications.
BERNHARDT can also supply high barrier moisture proof tubular bags and liners that provide an ideal solution for lining drums and pails for products requiring extra barrier protection.

High Barrier technologies
BERNHARDT’s liquid pouch solutions are based on a variety of leading-edge technologies required to produce high barrier packaging. These include:
- Sealable In Layer: made from Polyethylene (PE) or Polypropylene (PP) in thicknesses from 75µm to 150µm and incorporating ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) or silicon oxide (SiOx) additives to increase the barrier properties of transparent PE materials
- Non-Sealable Out Layer: Made from Polyester (PET), White or Brown paper, Polyamide (PA), Metallic Polyester film or PP
- Intermediate Layers: provided in Aluminum, Polyamide, Metallized Polyester, etc., to give liners mechanical resistance or additional protection properties
- BI-Layer Materials: Dual laminate Paper-PE, Pa-PE or Pet-PE for eco-applications; Sy-PE, Pet EVOH-PE, Paper-EVOH-PE or Metallized Pet-PE for optimum barrier performance
- Triplex Layer Materials: High Barrier: Pet-Alu-PE, ¨Paper-Alu-PE, Metallized Pet-PE, Pet-PA-SiOx PE
- Quadruplex Layer Materials: Four-layer laminates for ultra-high barrier applications including Pet-Alu-Pa-PE and Paper-Alu-Pa-PE
BERNHARDT has also perfected Impulse Driver as the ideal system for temperature thermo-regulation hermetic sealing by users.
