Forming webs and packages are provided having improved sealability to peelable lidstocks. The thermoformed containers (12) may have a mouth (14) having an opening and a flange being disposed about the opening, the flange formed from a forming web and having a thickness greater than about 12 mils and up to about 80 mils. The forming web may have a base layer (20) with a skim coating (24) thereon, a portion of the skim coating being on the flange having a skim coating thickness from about 2 mils to about 8 mils. A peelable lid (18) may include a film (28) with an inner lid sealant layer (26) which is sealed to the portion of the skim coating on the flange, the skim coating and inner lid sealant layer each having a common polyolefin majority component, the common polyolefin component being different than a majority component of the base layer.

Easy open flow wrappers are provided that include a flexible wrapper body formed from a flexible wrapper body film, the flexible wrapper body having a front panel and a back panel sealed together along one longitudinal seam and two lateral end seams containing a product therein. At least one line of weakness (24) substantially extends around a portion of the flexible wrapper body to define a removable portion (28) of the flexible wrapper body, such that application of a separation force upon the removable portion separates the removable portion from the flexible wrapper body at the at least one line of weakness and forms an opening in the flexible wrapper body. A flexible film member (26) is disposed over and extending beyond the at least one line of weakness, in which the flexible film member is configured to prevent pre-separation of the removable portion from the flexible wrapper body.


Blow molded containers and methods for making the same are provided. A blow molded container has a container wall including a thermoplastic polymer material having a rheology melt strength (Rms) of at least 30 Pa s2. A method of making a container includes providing a material sheet including at least one thermoplastic polymer layer having a rheology melt strength (Rms) of at least 30 Pa s2, forming the material sheet into a tube, sealing the tube at a seal area, and blow molding the tube to form a container.

An easy open package is provided including a package body formed from a flexible film having a pair of transverse end seals and a longitudinal seal generally therebetween. The longitudinal seal includes a sealed region between a first longitudinal edge portion of the flexible film sealed to a second longitudinal edge portion of the flexible film. A tear strip and pull tab formed in the package body are configured such that initiation of a tear by pulling the pull tab in one direction causes controlled tearing of the flexible film along the line of weakness defining the tear strip. Flexible films and methods for fabrication of the flexible films and packages also are provided.


Metallized water-marked films and methods of manufacture thereof are provided. The metallized water-marked films include at least a base substrate, a coating layer in the form of one or more markings that are each substantially free of pigment on at least a first portion of a first surface of the base substrate, and a metallized layer disposed over the coating layer and at least a portion of a second portion of the first surface of the base substrate. Packages for containing a product therein, methods for making the packages, and methods for packaging a product that employ the metallized water-marked films are also provided. Also provided are rolls of film for forming a package that include the metallized water-marked films.

Containers and methods for their manufacture are provided. Containers include first and second panels connected at first and second edges, a bottom panel connecting the first and second panels at a third edge, a panel area defined by a seal extending from the first edge and having a first aperture at a first corner of the container, and a pour feature disposed at least partially at a second corner diagonally opposite the first corner, wherein the bottom panel or the first edge comprises a gusset. Methods include forming such container and forming at least one aperture in the panel area.


Blow molded containers and methods for making the same are provided. A blow molded container has a container wall including a thermoplastic polymer material having a rheology melt strength (R_(ms)) of at least 30 Pas^(2). A method of making a container includes providing a material sheet including at least one thermoplastic polymer layer having a rheology melt strength (R_(ms)) of at least 30 Pas^(2), forming the material sheet into a tube, sealing the tube at a seal area, and blow molding the tube to form a container.
