Description

Field of Invention



[0001] The disclosure relates to a package formed from a multilayer structure.

Background of the Invention



[0002] Stand-up pouch flexible packaging formats are generally composed of two or more films that are laminated using either adhesive lamination or extrusion lamination. Typically the laminates will be a combination of one or two "hard" films made from polymers such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), oriented polypropylene (OPP), oriented polyamide (OPA) (and their metalized variants), Aluminum foil and a sealant layer comprising polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP). For such films to function and process on conventional pouch making equipment (such as vertical form fill seal (VFFS), horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) and Doypak) a temperature gradient across the film ideally of greater than 60 °C is needed, i.e., the sealant layer melts and seals but the outside film (hard film) does not. Currently, polymer packaging materials have a typical plastic feel. However, for some products, consumers may be more amenable to soft or cloth like feel and touch. US-A-2010/150479 discloses a package formed from a multilayer structure which comprises a nonwoven layer, a coextruded multilayer film having a polyolefin-based sealant layer with a melting point of equal to or above 104°C, wherein the nonwoven layer forms an outer layer of the package.

[0003] WO 2005/087486 A1 also discloses a package formed from a multilayer structure comprising a nonwoven outer layer and a coextruded multilayer film having a polyolefin-based sealant layer.

Summary of the Invention



[0004] The disclosure is for a package formed from a multilayer structure.

[0005] In one embodiment, the disclosure provides a package comprising a multilayer structure which comprises a nonwoven layer; a coextruded multilayer film having a polyolefin-based sealant layer with a melting point of equal to or less than 90°C, wherein the nonwoven layer forms an outer layer of the package which provides a soft touch or feel and an outer surface with fabric-like appearance.
