A Pasted Valve Stepped End (“PVSE”) multi-wall paper bag, is a common industrial packaging style designed to package a wide variety of dry flowable products. Valve bags are packed on equipment that deposits material into the bag via horizontal filling spout. When the bag is discharged from the packing equipment, forces generated by the product inside the bag allow the valve opening to self-seal.
Used for medium to large format products of varying density, PBOM bags are ideal for high-end and sensitive products in the chemicals, food, pharmaceutical, and pet food industries when barrier liners are required to optimally preserve the bag’s contents. PBOM bags can be closed by sewing, but they are most often closed/sealed by Pinch Bag Closers (PBC) using a pre-applied hot-melt to create sift proof closures.
Often referred to as a “Webb” bag, the satchel bottom open mouth bag is a merger of 2 distinct bag styles (SOS & PBOM). This unique bag type offers a square satchel style bottom and sealable open mouth top. Webb bags are closed/sealed by Pinch Bag Closers (PBC) using a pre-applied hot-melt to create sift proof closures. Webb bags palletize and transport better than standard PBOM bags due to their square bottom.
An SOS bag is a block bottom, gusseted style bag that is capable of standing up unsupported due to its flat, machine-formed base. SOS bags provide superior stability during filling. In addition, their shape stacks well and creates a stable pallet load.
An SOM bag is an open mouth bag that is closed using sewing thread. The bag is a flush cut tube that is factory closed at one end and left open at the other end for the customer to pack and sew closed.
SOM bags were one of the earliest multi-wall bag constructions available in the market. Today they remain a tough, economical, workhorse bag style for a broad range of applications.
