General Questions

What is skin packaging and how does it work?


  • The skin packaging is a process in which heated film is draped over a product and onto a substrate, and a vacuum is utilized to draw the film down onto the package, creating a secure and attractive package.
  • The skin package consists of: skin film, a heat activated coating on the film or the substrate, and a subtrate, either paperboard or corrugated.
  • Heat Seal's Ampak division manufactures skin packaging machines Thrifty Pack, Shipmate, and the Master.
  • To finish the process, die cut machines are often used to create an attractive package to display or transport.  Ampak also manufactures automatic and semi-automatic die cutters: Rotomatic and Rotocut.

What are the benefits of skin packaging?


Skin Packaging:
  • Provides lock down product protection
  • Provides full product visibility
  • Contours to the shape of the product
  • Secures loose products to the board, preventing lost kit parts
  • Is great for hanging hook displays
  • Reduces the need for protective packaging fillers, thus making it an economical packaging option

Troubleshooting

The film is not adhering to the substrate


  • If using adhesive treated film, make sure the film is threaded with the adhesive coating facing the product and the substrate.
  • If using adhesive backed card, make sure the adhesive is facing up.  
  • Make sure the film is heated so that it falls below the film frame about 1" before being drawn onto the film.
  • If these do not work, contact your local Heat Seal distributor, or film supplier.

How do I get rid of wrinkles on the final package?


  • Wrinkles, or excess film, is often caused because the film was heated for too long.  
  • Depending on the height of the product off of the substrate, the film should heat until it is approximately 1 inch below the flim frame before being drawn down on the product.
