Using Packaging Precautions Huizhou Printing Using Different Packaging Materials Precautions
- May 28, 2018 -

The key to successful packaging box printing customization is the selection of packaging materials and designs to meet the competitive demands of product characteristics, market considerations (including distribution needs and consumer demand), environmental and waste management issues, and costs. Balancing many factors is not only difficult, but also requires a different analysis for each product, taking into account the nature of packaging materials and other factors, the type of food packaging, the products of the target market, the need for product shelf life, storage and sales during the environmental conditions, End-use of the product, final packaging disposal, and packaging-related costs throughout the entire production and distribution process. Huizhou Printing understands that some of these factors are interrelated: for example, the type of food and the nature of the packaging material determine the nature of the food packaging interaction during storage. At other times, these factors are inconsistent with each other: For example, a single package meets consumer needs, but bulk packaging is more suitable for environmental factors.

      Features

      A thorough understanding of product characteristics, including degradation mechanisms, distribution requirements, and potential interactions with packages, is essential for packaging design and development. These characteristics relate to the physical, chemical, biochemical and microbiological properties of the product. Materials that provide the best protection for product quality and safety are preferred. Also, the distribution system and conditions help determine the type of packaging material used.

      In particular, food/packaging interactions play an important role in the selection of packaging materials. Each packaging material has different inherent properties (for example, hardness and permeability to gas). Taking into account the characteristics of the food (eg, acidity and photosensitivity), these characteristics will affect which material is best for a particular food.

      Food/packaging interactions involve the transport of low molecular weight compounds such as gas or steam and water from (1) food through packaging, (2) environment through packaging, (3) food into packaging, and/or (4) packaging entry food. It may also include chemical changes in food, packaging, or both. These interactions result in food contamination (potential health issues), loss of packaging integrity (potential safety issues), or quality degradation.

      The most common food packaging interaction in Huizhou printing is the migration of low molecular weight substances such as stabilizers, plasticizers, antioxidants, monomers, and oligomers from plastic packaging materials to foods (in addition, low molecular weight compounds (volatile) And non-volatile) can be transferred from the food to the packaging material through the adsorption mechanism. Volatile substances, such as flavor and aroma, directly affect the quality of food, while non-volatile compounds such as fats and pigments affect the packaging.

      marketing

      Marketing is a prerequisite for successful innovation in the packaging industry; it promotes products in a highly competitive market and increases consumer choice. Consumers are always looking for packages that provide convenient attributes such as resealability, container portability (lightweight material first choice), easy opening, convenient preparation characteristics, and product visibility.

      Environmental characteristics

      Life cycle analysis, as a comprehensive analysis of production data, is of great significance in determining the impact of packaging on the environment. This analysis combines quantitative assessments of environmental costs, taking into account issues such as material use, energy consumption, and waste generation. The concept of sustainable development from the cradle to the cradle is based on a life cycle analysis of material and energy recovery. In addition, Huizhou Printing is developing new packaging materials to promote truly sustainable goals.
