The thickness is usually measured in microns. 1 micron is one millionth of a metre. Here are some examples for you to consider:

  • 100 micron Pouches – highly durable and tear resistant, these pouches usually have high-barrier pouch properties, making them ideal for food (including pet food), drinks, and medical packaging. Generally, this thickness is better for smaller pouches.
  • 125 micron  Pouches – this is the standard thickness that Polypouch will use to give a premium feel to your packaging.
